2019 Agricultural Society of Kenya (ASK) Nairobi.
The Miramar International Foundation’s Hydroponics exhibition at the 2019 Agricultural Society of Kenya Show showcased innovative and sustainable farming practices that could revolutionize the way we grow crops in Kenya and beyond. Hydroponics has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its ability to maximize crop yields while minimizing the use of water and other resources. The foundation’s exhibition demonstrated how this technique can be used to grow a wide range of crops, from leafy greens to fruiting vegetables, in a controlled environment without the need for soil. The exhibition also highlighted the potential for hydroponics to be used in urban farming, making it an attractive option for communities with limited access to land..
The Miramar International Foundation’s Hydroponics exhibition not only showcased the benefits of this innovative farming technique but also highlighted the importance of sustainable agriculture in promoting food security and environmental conservation. With the world’s population projected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050, there is a need for more efficient and sustainable ways of producing food. Hydroponics presents an opportunity to address this challenge by maximizing crop yields while minimizing the use of resources such as land and water. The exhibition was a testament to the foundation’s commitment to promoting sustainable development and empowering communities through innovative solutions. By bringing together farmers, policymakers, and other stakeholders, the exhibition created a platform for dialogue and knowledge-sharing, paving the way for a more sustainable and food-secure future.
