Ecco perché sviluppiamo soluzioni per la coltivazione automatizzata di verdura in idroponica

L’allarme siccità in Italia dovuta alle basse precipitazioni degli ultimi mesi causerà notevoli danni al settore agricolo. Per soddisfare la richiesta i distribuzioni dovranno rivolgersi all’estero e importare le verdure a costi maggiori e non necessariamente della medesima qualità, con un conseguente impatto ambientale dovuto ai trasporti. La situazione potrebbe essere meno problematica se si facesse capo a coltivazioni controllate in culture idroponiche come quelle realizzate da Swissponic.
