Pegasus Food Futures showcased their pioneering hydroponic farming capability (growing plants without soil, using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent) at the Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture, in Abu Dhabi on February 5 and 6.
With the world population set to grow from 7.3 billion to 8.5 billion by 2030 and 11.2 billion by 2100, an agricultural solution to the growing food needs of the population is essential.
Hydroponic farming is an innovative system that uses up to 90 percent less water than conventional farming, uses less land producing high yields of sustainably high quality, reasonably priced crops.
Providing an affordable and reliable food source that is also environmentally sustainable is essential to meet the needs of the growing population. Pegasus Food Futures provides solutions for these global food supply challenges through its operations and innovations in farming, livestock, feed stock and food production.
Farms in arid areas such as the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries can make the most of the long hours of sunlight, providing the region with crops and reducing the need to rely on expensive imports.
In 2017 Pegasus Food Futures acquired farms in Abu Dhabi, Ras-Al-Khaimah and two sites in Portugal.Add to Favorites
