Malaysia: Entrepreneur bets on precision vertical farming to tackle food security

Vertical farming is not limited to vast rural landscapes; it can thrive in urban areas as well. Envision fresh produce cultivated right in your city – that is what Datanam's precision vertical farming brings to the table. By growing food where people live, we reduce the need for long-distance transportation, decreasing carbon emissions and supporting local communities.

"Now, let us discuss food security. Precision vertical farming has some impressive strategies. With a controlled environment shielded from pests, diseases, and extreme weather, your crops are safe and secure. Bid farewell to unpredictable weather challenges and welcome consistent, high-quality food. Thanks to year-round production, precision vertical farming does not rely on seasonal variations. It provides a solution for a consistent food supply, even when the weather outside is challenging," said Ghazali Muhiyuddin, Founder of Datanam.

To render precision vertical farming truly effective, the harnessing of advanced technologies and data analysis becomes paramount. The focus is on working smarter, not harder. The Internet of Things (IoT) assumes a crucial role, facilitating the monitoring and control of various facets within the farming system. Whether it is temperature, humidity, or nutrient levels, IoT maintains meticulous oversight. It resembles a high-tech caretaker for the plants.

Equally vital is data analysis. By crunching the numbers, the optimization of crop growth becomes possible. This entails analyzing soil variability, plant health, and resource utilization – akin to having a personal coach for the crops, guiding them toward their full potential.
