On the topic of Climate Smart – Regenerative Agriculture, we are setting up demo-farms in our various projects, where we are practicing Climate Smart – REgenerative Agriculture using drip irrigation systems on cone gardens, and getting very high crop yields on a very small space.
Climate-smart agriculture is a farming model that transforms agriculture towards #green
and climate resilient practices.
Climate Smart Agriculture tackles three main objectives:
1. Sustainably increasing agricultural productivity and incomes.
2. Reducing or eliminating greenhouse gas emissions, where possible.
3. Adapting and building resilience to climate change – in terms of reducing vulnerability to drought, pests, diseases and other
climate-related risks and shocks.
How it Works
The liquid fertiliser from the flexi biogas system comes out in liquid form and is highly nutritious and ready for absorption by plants without ”burning the plants”.
The fertiliser is then pumped using a solar water pump to an overhead tank, water is also pumped to a separate tank beside it and the mixture flows by gravity to the drip irrigation system on the vertical gardens.
This makes watering and general management of the gardens super easy and efficient.
Bio-fertiliser has many positive effects in addition to being a great source of nutrients.
