We are happy to share that the demonstration of the Bioponics system is well underway. This system is part of a grant project for the research, demonstration, and education of local growers in proven technologies to produce specialty crops that can bring more income and more food security. The grant was awarded by FIDA (Fondo de Innovación para el Desarrollo Agricola) as part of the USDA-AMS (Agricultural Marketing Service): Specialty Crops Grants. We at Plenitud are very grateful for this support.
In addition to educating farmers and growers, the goal of the grant is also to educate consumers on the benefits of consuming healthy and fresh foods. This will hopefully stimulate demand for these specialty crops, which will then encourage more farmers to get involved. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue operating this system and learning all along the way.
