Aquaponics, Hydroponics and Smart Green House technology practical Master class 2020 will be an innovative platform, covering all key aspects of Aquaponics, indoor farming and controlled environment agriculture to participants of all the backgrounds. In 2050, the earth's population will be 9 billion, 70% of whom will be living in urban areas. This growing urban population will need access to healthy and nutritious food.
It is estimated that we will have to produce double the amount of healthy, nutritious food with half the resources of today. This leaves us with one of today's biggest challenges- food security Technology and innovation will be key to addressing these challenges...
