Greener Crop strives to improve the way we grow food. The farmers and livestock producers, who currently feed us, are confronted with changes in consumer demand, government regulations, and the weather.
We believe that hydroponic farms can play a critical role in:
Localizing food production
Weatherproofing farm & livestock operations
Supplementing farm revenues
Hydroponic farming cannot replace conventional agriculture. But it provides a strategic solution to combat food deserts, reduce food-transport-related GHG emissions, and support the next generation of farmers and livestock producers.
Greener Crop's mission is to enable the deployment of more hydroponic farms. We support clients with design, set-up, and daily operation of their hydroponic farms. By utilizing cutting-edge technologies, and data-driven farm management, we can operate profitable farms in areas not suited for conventional agriculture.
