Production of real nutrious food

Urban Ponics is a Dutch company that promotes the production of nutritious food. It has developed a commercial way of vertical farming on small scale.

Traditional farming is facing serious problems.

There is a huge pressure to produce more food each day. The growth of the human population and worldwide urbanization is becoming exponential. Shortage of water is a serious problem for many countries and the uncontrolled application of chemical fertilizers exhausts the land.

The quality of our food decreases because of the excessive use of pesticides and shortage of nutrients. It does not contain enough vitamins, minerals and trace elements. They have disappeared from the soil and neither are supplied in modern hydroponic growing systems.

Urban Ponics introduces a new way of commercial City-Farming!

In climate controlled Micro-greenhouses of only 10, 50 or 100 sq.mt, vertical grow-POD's and A-FRAME's produce nutritious vegetables, herbs and fruits. An oxygen and nutrient-rich mist, that contains an unique fertilizer supplement with 90+ sea minerals and humic extracts, is used as growing medium. The plants are able to absorb all these minerals, trace elements and phytonutrients that they need for healthy growing. Pesticides are no longer needed because the plants can defend themselves very good against bugs and funguses.

Eating healthy plants makes humans healthy too. The taste of the products is a very good indicator. Vegetables, herbs and fruits that are produced in the Urban Ponics systems, can be compared with products that are harvested from virgin soil. This means that all the necessary nutrients are in the plant. No more lettuce and tomatoes that taste like "solid water"! Let us produce Nutritious Food for humans again!
