The Iron Ox is working on hydroponic robotics technology to produce plants from less for sustainable farming. The World Resources Institute has revealed that the world’s population will be 10 billion by 2050, which means an increase of 2.4 billion people in need of daily food, the challenge of emerging Iron Ox.
Iron Ox is working to create more sustainable farms through the combination of combination of robotic picking arms, hydroponic vats, and self-driving porters to grow vegetables.
Aquaculture is the process of planting plants without soil, and there are many advantages of this type of agriculture, as aquaculture can produce crops equal to the proportion of consumption used by citizens, and with the use of robots also we can ensure the acquisition of products fast and agreed according to global standards, according to Iron Ox.
According to global market research firm IBISWorld, the U.S. hydroponic industry alone will reach $856.8 million by 2021, from $821 million in 2016 and the number of businesses will jump from 2,347 to more than 3,000. Flux sees home gardeners as a target market, and in the U.S. 42 million households grow food at home, according to The National Gardening Association.
