Explain your project in details:
The project is an industrial model of round the way flood and drain aquaponics design to suit the environment and climate of our terrain in Sub Saharan Africa. It is an IoT that functions to make the proposed market segment more inclined to purchase the product and enter the competitive market of commercial farming. The aquaponics system has automated functions that assist in mitigating risks; such as plant and fish death and make the process easier for those who have little to much skills in aquaponics farming. The system also yields 2400 fish annually and 249,000 leafy greens and or herbs.
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
The aquaponics system takes up 27 m.sq. and doesn't use soil thus having a profound impact on the conservation of land in farming. It can be used in the backyard so it will not impede on those who do not have access to certain socio economic amenities and priviledges, it is therefore a great equaliser of competition in the commercial agriculture sector.
Sustainability and future plans
We would like to exercise the b2b business model, a drop shipping relationship between manufacturer and buyer such as Fulfilment By Amazon. In this relationship the customer gets to brand our product as their own, at a price set by the manufacturer and sell it direct to the buyer on Amazon.
