Consumers in the supermarket demand healthy products. But how can they be sure that the tomatoes and lettuce, produced with the Full Spectrum Farming method contain more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants than comparable products? They all look the same! The consumers needed some help…
How does it work?
Urban Ponics designs and manufactures growing computers for micro greenhouses in Urban Areas. The collected data is displayed on an online dashboard and stored in the cloud. Besides registration and interpretation of data, the micro computer can also assist the farmer with greenhouse operations, filling the tanks and control the humidity and temperature in the greenhouse.
The UP-Equivalent is an equivalent that indicates the nutritional value in the vegetables. Instead of paying per kilo of water + cellulose, customers will pay for nutritional content of the product. At this moment a blockchain application is being created that should provide the customer accurate information about the products they purchase. The customer should be able to make a decision to buy the product with the lowest price or the product with the highest content of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The blockchain will be integrated in the 4-Leafed concept and will be rolled out on 2021.
