Product/Service Summary

With the increase in urbanization and population, we often compromise on the quality of food using harmful chemicals, pesticides, and preservatives to meet the growing needs of the people. We at Crofters want people to know and understand where their food comes from by creating a system
that can grow healthy organic food. We have built intelligent, self-cleaning, aquaponics systems that help you grow completely organic food in the comfort of your homes. Crofters is for passionate gardeners living in crowded apartments without a backyard space or a terrace of their own.
We have combined nature and technology to build intelligent systems wit a mobile app and sensor units which help control and monitor all
ecosystem parameters remotely. And all this comes with zero-maintenance. Users can use the system to grow vegetables, herbs or small fruits.
