In this article, Élever Group explains its take on the agricultural industry and its challenges.
Although the advancement of science in agronomy in the last decade has helped farmers grow their crops in a more ecological manner, in terms of pesticide reduction and smarter water dispersion. It yet has to show any great advantage of the methodologies used in vertical farming.
Since August 2020 the team at Élever Group has dedicated its time and energy to engineer a personal vertical farm in an attempt to solve these issues.
The personal vertical farm
"Our goal is simple and straightforward, it is to enable any society that has acquired V to become a DCSA (Decentralized Community Supported Agriculture)."
V, which is short for Vita (meaning life in Italian), will compromise of a hydroponic tower, two micro-greens compartments, and as well as a fungi compartment.
In the tech world, V will be known as an IoT product, but unlike any other IoT-enabled personal vertical farm, V will work in a decentralized manner. Making a far smarter personal vertical farm than any of its peers.
DCSA (Decentralized Community Supported Agriculture)
To impact communities through this new concept of DCSA, Elever took a simple example of the complex city of Paris to showcase how this would be done in a simple and ecological manner. Imagine a cluster of V’s within each district of Paris, interconnected through a DAPP (Decentralized App), where the needs of one district can be met through another’s capability of growing.
"This is the future we envision at Élever Group. The simplicity of community helping one another through growing high nutritional foods in a cleaner manner, delivered on time without the need of the complexity of imports and exports and finally having true control on real-time trade."
