Every seed is a miracle
Being the foundation of life, a seed is indeed a miracle… A miracle small in size but great in capacity, sprouting and perishing as soon as we water it… An incredible miracle containing all the information of a plant, which determines its species, colour, shape and taste…
THE HISTORY OF AGRICULTURE
Plant Factories, Agriculture 4.0
It all began with a woman accidentally dropping a seed of wheat to the soil.
Around 10,000 years ago, fate of humanity dramatically changed with cultivation of wheat in southeast Turkey. Hunter-gatherer lifestyles were replaced with permanent settlements.
We can neither feed the world through conventional agriculture nor keep our planet unpolluted
The Industrial Revolution introduced modernization in primitive agricultural methods; therefore the second phase of agriculture began. However, with the huge upsurge in population growth following World War II, arable lands were cultivated uncontrollably to meet the growing need for food, along with the increase in the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. What did not pose a threat then is now causing big problems.
The third phase of agriculture began after greenhouse cultivation had been developed in the second half of the 20th century. And thus, more varied crops began to be produced in longer seasons and in smaller spaces.
By 2050, the world population is expected to reach 12 billion people, and agricultural lands are projected to diminish. On the one hand, conventional agriculture is trying to meet the world’s food demand, but on the other hand, all those pesticides, fertilizers, and nutrients harm human health and the environment. Soil, water and air are polluted along with the food we consume, posing a big threat to the growing world population.
FUTURE FARM 4.0
But we can save our planet, by working for humanity and nature through Agriculture 4.0
We are bringing natural ways back to agricultural practices through Farminova Plant Factories by increasing the production and efficiency through green technology as never before. We are paving the way for farming in indoor-facilities to grow healthy and constant crops 7 days a week, 24 hours a day in any desired place and time without polluting the environment. Unlike conventional farming, we produce eco-friendly and sustainable plants with minimum use of water to yield high quality of products. We make the best of the miracle of seeds. We are going up to Agriculture 4.0, the fourth phase of agriculture.
