Cardiff-based AgriTech startup Phytoponics wants to make fresh produce abundant with their phytophonicshydroponic solutions that are scalable, profitable, and sustainable.

We have written a good few times about agritech, as it is a vital field in which fascinating and exciting developments are being made.

Small Robot Company, innovating the farming industry with AI-controlled robots; to MiAlgae, revolutionising the livestock feed industry and fighting overfishing and, believe it or not, slavery in the process; to Farm From a Box, providing an ecology of smart farming technologies to developing countries or anywhere that farming is particularly challenging, all in a big, self-sufficient box.

The world of agritech startups is one dedicated to bettering the world and helping those who need it the most. And today we are looking at another startup in these ranks.

phytophonicsCardiff-based Phytoponics has developed a hydroponics system that they think is going to transform commercial agriculture.

Inspired in part by seeing that refugee camps are erected away from farms and farmable land, Phytoponics’ flexible, high-tech polymer system is inexpensive, compact for transport, and installs quickly just with inflation.

This more environmentally-friendly system takes up 10 times less land and water than traditional farming, with increased productivity.

The automated multi-crop nutrient system adapts to existing infrastructure and allows the grower to simultaneouslyphytophonics and easily control a wide range of crops, greatly increasing productivity and consistency, as well as using resources more efficiently.

Phytoponics has been through through programmes such as Startupbootcamp, presenting at the Startupbootcamp Foodtech Demo Day; the Business Wales Accelerated Growth Programme; and the week-long United Nations World Food Programme.

Last December, Phytoponics founder Adama Dixon was awarded the UN Young Champion of the Earth award in Nairobi. This speaks for itself, as does the technology, but we’ll say it anyway: this is an amazing startup that deserves all the recognition and support it can get and, like its own produce, we think it will just keep growing!
