AAHAR

A more ecological way of farming

About The Project

Project Aahar's main aim is to eliminate the role and function of the middlemen and to directly connect the farmer communities to the consumers. This leads to increase in the profit of the farmers and also, consumers get fresh vegetables at considerably lower rates.

Moving from the conventional techniques of agriculture, we are helping farmers to shift to a new form, that is “Hydroponics”, which is growing plants without soil, instead using a nutrient-rich solution to deliver water and minerals to their roots. By applying a nutrient solution directly to a plant’s roots in a controlled environment, a farmer can ensure that the plant always has an optimal supply of water and nutrients. This nutritional efficiency makes the plant more productive, thus increase farming outputs and grow plants in habitats that wouldn’t normally sustain them!






Impact

It uses only 1/20th of water compared to traditional (soil based) gardening.It provides a sterile environment for plant production. This technique does not require pesticides, fertilizers and other chemicals, as there’s no chance of damage due to soil-borne diseases or pests.Crops grow two times faster in hydroponic gardening. It provides controlled environment, and yield is doubled leading to more production from same amount of space.


IT NEEDS 20% OF LESS SPACE IN COMPARISON TO SOIL BASED GARDENS, AS PLANTS WITH SMALL ROOTS CAN BE GROWN CLOSER TO EACH OTHER.

IT USES ONLY 1/20TH OF WATER COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL (SOIL BASED) GARDENING.

THROUGH HYDROPONIC GARDENING PLANTS CAN BE GROWN ANYWHERE AS LONG AS THEIR GROWTH REQUIREMENTS ARE MET.
