We have designed low-cost, automated, and renewable irrigation systems that can be easily installed in remote locations. They are able to deliver seawater, or saltwater, to the crops twice a day in ways that mimic the natural growth of saltmarsh plants. We also provide specialised seeds to farmers, depending on their needs. For example, we can provide species of shrubs for animal fodder, succulents for food or for oil production.
Our aquaculture system uses salt-tolerant plants to filter out bio-waste from fish farming which minimises wastewater pollution of the environment, and increases the health of fish stocks. This wastewater fertilises the plants, which can then be used for food, fodder, or processed oils in cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. Water from aquaculture fish ponds is diverted into artificial wetlands where halophytes are grown and water is remediated. Clean water then returns into the fish ponds. Floating beds on top of fish ponds act as natural habitats for fish and shellfish. These plants also act as fish feed, and research has shown that up to 40% of fish diets can be substituted by saline crops.
