Why choose SMART farming
So, before we get started, I’d like to introduce you our new colleague who have just joined our company, Shu Hua ! She worked as an intern at our company before and her performance was very impressive
Story of Shu Hua
During the time she was looking for an internship, she came across HAVVA – a company that specializes in vertical farming on urban farm. Although urban farming was definitely different from the conventional farming, she was familiar with. And she also felt it was an opportunity for her to gain new experience and this is how the beginning of her journey in HAVVA.
It was a mind blowing when she saw how HAVVA carry out the use of natural processes perfectly. Through the combination of human, fish, bacteria and vegetables. A symbiotic relation has been successfully achieved.
What is vertical farming
In addition, combined with the vertical farming and planting technology. It is possible to grow vegetables without using soil or watering, which greatly reduce the labor costs.
Daily routine as a conventional farmer before
Speaking of labor costs, she also told us about her daily routine as a conventional farmer. Everyday she had to get up early in the morning just to water the vegetables
Why choose HAVVA
Finally, even after graduation, Shu Hua chose to return to HAVVA not only because of her passion in vertical farming. But also the fact that she saw the potential of urban farming methods.
Besides, limited space and loss of nutrients from the land are often tricky problems for farmers. But with urban farming, it is possible to achieve stable supply of vegetables and at the same time maintain the quality. As long as you have a HAVVA system, you can grow a large amount of vegetables even if you only have small space.
Good news for you
In addition, another good thing about the system is that it can be used constantly. Unlike conventional farming that soil may lose its nutrients, urban farming utilizes the recirculation and reuse method to sustain nourishment and allow the vegetables to get the nutrients all they need .
It doesn’t matter if you want a stable yield or a variety of vegetables, the system can easily help you to achieve that.
Well, its time to wrap-up our sharing. Again, we hope this post has let you know a little more about difference between conventional and urban farming. And also vertical farming.
