Indoor vertical farm Terra-Mars officially launches through a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to help reduce the agriculture footprint without sacrificing access to quality food.
Terra-Mars leverages aquaponics ultimately delivering a self-sustaining solution suitable for any grower. The solution integrates Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning to monitor the system and control water, air, light, and nutrient levels.
Other features and benefits of Terra-Mars is that it offers a balanced ecosystem ideal for the survival of fish and plants, using 10% of the space that would be taken by traditional agriculture with the same crop yield. It also uses 95% less water and requires no pesticides or herbicides. The system has the potential to be taken to Mars when colonization becomes a reality.
