Long-term food security is of critical importance to all nations, especially so to those in developing states where large sections of the population do not have access to adequate nutritional food supply.
Africa’s expanding need for food to satisfy the basic World Health Organisation’s (WHO) recommendation of 150kg of fruit and vegetables per person per year is a growing problem, especially with rapidly expanding urban communities. Africa has vast areas of prime agricultural land that has the potential to feed much of the world if managed sustainably with modern techniques to maximise yield and quality.
Good Earth Power’s breakthrough NutriDome™ technology for commercially growing edible crops for both domestic consumption and export can make a significant difference. The NutriDome, developed and experimentally deployed in the UK, has the capability to deliver greater than 100 times the yield of traditional open field farming. Alongside this, Good Earth Power implements the latest agricultural knowledge, techniques and technology to provide staple crops for local communities and host nations using unique irrigation and fertilisation programmes.
As local food security is achieved, harvests will be tailor-made for exports with the resulting business being the backbone of a business knowledge transfer programme allowing women and youth to learn the skills and expertise of high grade agriculture and regional and international business.
The Good Earth Power NutriDome programme uses high levels of plant physiology knowledge to create the perfect growing environment for plants to mature and fruit. This highly controlled environment allows cropping 365 days per year creating a reliable food supply and stable and sustainable employment.
The initial focus will be on the following groups:
