Agrolytics Corp, a Midland-based company developing vertical farming technology, has partnered with the Saginaw Youth Development Corporation (YDC) to build an automated indoor farm pilot. The pilot will be the basis for a future, and much larger scale indoor farm, to be built for YDC's Food Scarcity Initiative.
“Our technology allows growers to operate closer to the consumer, in secured locations, urban food deserts and extreme climate with a vision to enable any crop to be grown anywhere,” stated Bob Cummer, president and CEO of Agrolytics. “We are excited to use our skillset to make an impact on our community and will be using the specialized services to enable our software technology while assisting us with a scaled demonstration of the farm.”
