Aponic Ltd have developed a vertical soil-less growing system that uses 90% less water than traditional agriculture, runs on rain water and solar power, does not emit harmful run-off into the environment and massively reduces the need for fossil fuels in food production.
Our domestic models easily mount on a sunny outside wall, fence panel or in a conservatory and require no digging, weeding or watering, just planting and harvesting.
They can be mounted at a height that is convenient so that everyone can join in the fun of growing healthy, tasty food that you know has been grown without pesticides or herbicides.
In commercial use, we can turn acreage into volume to expand the growing area in expensive greenhouses because we can grow long rows vertically upwards in the footprint of a single plant.
The 90% water savings and massively reduced labour costs we can make it easy to turn unproductive land into low input, high value output, low carbon growing areas. This means that contaminated and otherwise unusable land in town can be used to grow food from all over the world with zero food miles.
As Aponic is constantly expanding we are also always looking for new opportunities to work with commercial food producers, farmers, research institutes and collaborators interested in sustainable agricultural intensification worldwide.
