Our technology is going to be broadcast in Japanese National TV program for overseas, NHK World, on 2 June, 2018
Our water-saving agriculture technology in arid area is to be presented in the TV program for overseas in Japanese national TV station, NHK World Bizstream, on 2nd of June 2018.
Because of the growing global population and economic growth in emerging countries, there are growing concerns about the global food shortage. To increase food production, it is necessary to improve agriculture productivity, which normally requires additional water resource to support the higher yield. However, 70% of available water resource all over the world is already consumed for agriculture. Under this situation, the technology to maintain or increase productivity with less water consumption is highly needed.
Our foamed glass material “Porous Alpha” works as a soil amendment to improve the water retention capacity of the soil. In our track records for the farmers in the arid area including Morocco, Porous Alpha has been realizing the reduction of water consumption and liquid fertilizer alongside with maintain or increase of harvest.
