Hydrogreens Agri Solutions Pvt., Ltd.
Vertical farming systems to increase productivity and reduce environmental impact
Hydrogreens sells vertical farming systems directly to farmers offering them grant support. Their key customers are small-scale dairy farmers in semi-arid, dry and arid regions. Farmers could grow fodder in summer, nursery plants in rainy season, oyster mushrooms in winter.
By using their systems, cows produce 1 to 3 litres more milk, reduce feed concentrates by up to 50%, and sheep weight 2 to 3 kgs more, increasing productivity for local farmers.
Vilgro Innovations Foundation supports them with a grant to build the team and scale the product, as well as mentorship, market access and networking, and business reviews.
SustainPlus offers grant support to farmers to access their systems. They also identify beneficiaries and monitor feedback and interventions’ impact.
The SEED Low Carbon Awards 2021 in Ghana, India, Indonesia, South Africa, Thailand and Uganda are sponsored by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
