One way to achieve Zero Hunger by 2030 is to do more with less. At Laava Tech we will help farmers to produce more crops with less work and way higher lighting efficiency.The little farmer can’t keep up with maintenance costs at the moment, nor with initial high investments, and that means that the whole farming sector will need to undergo unprecedented changes. Laava Tech would want to be a part of this change.
Also new light systems are extremely expensive. We'll operate with a monthly subscription model, enabling our customers to get started with a relatively low monthly cost while providing them with almost immediate ROI.
Lighting cocsts for indoor farmers take up to 98% of the whole electricity bill.Our technology combines the efficiency of LED lights with machine learning, AI, and IoT to produce optimized growing conditions for each plant, so that no excess energy is used.
Our system will help to disrupt traditional produce supply chains by building farms near major distribution routes and cities, minimizing harmful carbon emissions, and defying traditional growing seasons by enabling local farming at commercial scale all-year round. Moreover, our patented precision farming technology allows us to use a fraction of the fertilizers and90% less energy than traditional lighting systems.
Controlled environment agriculture offers many significant benefits such as the ability to reduce food miles, water usage savings over traditional field-grown crops, the ability to grow year-round and elimination of pesticides and herbicides.
