Hydroponic Fodder System | Iraq
In Iraq, availability and price of fodder are highly volatile and create a vulnerability for small-scale farmers. With the innovative hydroponic fodder system, based on a technology of soil-less plant propagation, farmers will be able to cultivate and produce low-cost green fodder in a one-week period all year round. Our solution requires less water compared with traditional farming and is entirely powered by solar panels, making it both sustainable and a great contestant in the fight against climate change. It will allow them to increase their profits, maintain stable production of food products, improve the health of their animals, and increase food security. In the long term, the project will strengthen resilience to drought and market volatility, benefiting both farmers and the local community.
