SANANBIO and Hode Agtech Teamed Up for Qatari Indoor Farming Projects
As a country comprised of errand dessert land; dry, hot summers laden with dusty winds and cooler winters, Qatar is ideal for indoor farm produce production. Currently, about 90% of all produce is imported. With politics and environmental factors at play, Industry leaders have emerged to contribute to solving these challenges to ensure access to fresh nutritionally dense food for Qatar’s 2.7 million people.
Indoor farming, also referred to as Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA), is a modern agricultural method that utilizes LED grow lights and sophisticated cultivation techniques to grow crops in a controlled-environment space which provides the plants with everything they need to thrive. One of many positive aspects of indoor farms is that they may operate independent of local climate conditions, allowing consistent harvest results throughout the year. With partnership like the one between SANANBIO and Hode AgTech, laying the ground work for domestic agricultural production in Qatar becomes possible.
