As of now (Decemeber 2022), we have developed 5 aeroponic Tower Farms in Africa (2 in Kenya, 1 in Equatorial Guinea, 1 in Nigeria, and 1 in Cape Verde).
Each project clearly outlined the relevance of Tower Farms’ vertical farming technology in Africa.
At first sight, it would appear that saving 95% water in comparison to conventional farming would be the main perk of a Tower Farm in Africa. Others would consider the ability to grow food within city limits to be the prime advantage.
However, at Agrotonomy, the most critical aspect of our aeroponic technology lies in the fact that no previous agricultural experience is required to run a Tower Farm. There is no need to have a farming or gardening background. The concept of having a “green thumb” does not exist.
Contrary to a conventional hydroponic NFT commercial farm, no agronomist nor horticulturist is required… Anyone motivated can learn overnight and be guaranteed a thriving food-growing experience right from the first harvest.
In Africa, we are committed to developing Tower Farm projects in the following countries: Algeria, Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burundi, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Congo, Djibouti, Egypt, Equatorial, Eritrea, Eswatini, Guinea, Ethiopia, Gambia, Gabon, Ghana, Ivory Coast (Côte d’Ivoire), Guinea-Bissau, Lesotho, Liberia, Libya, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
Tower Farms using Tower Garden aeroponic technology is Africa’s perfect autonomous agricultural solution.
