NWP6 offers turnkey Hydroponic solutions for social and environmental benefits

Low-tech flexible growing systems bears fruit for Indian growers

With a BOT business model, New World Paradigm 6, a UK-based company with operations in India, provides turnkey solutions for Indian growers who want high yield returns on their crops by the use of modern hydroponic growing systems.

Simply put, New World Paradigm promotes the production of agricultural crops in hydroponic systems, utilising energy and water in an efficient, eco-friendly way, delivering economic, social and environmental benefits to stakeholders.

The company has introduced into the Indian Agricultural scene a profitable hydroponic food production system. NWP6 promotes sustainable business practises that have a positive economic, social and environmental impact.

“We implement hydroponic based growing systems where we provide management, agronomy and marketing of produce,” said NWP6's CEO, Michael Sun. “That's what makes us different.” New World Hydroponics operates under the NWP6 umbrella, and Sun explained that NWP6 uses the technology developed through their hydroponic business to provide clients hydroponic growing solutions.

“We first developed a research and development greenhouse near Delhi about 18 months ago,” said Sun. “From there, we did a lot of research and training, and now we've got one commercial project underway and two that are scheduled to go online in the next two months.” The current commercial project currently produces about 120 kilos of iceberg lettuce a week, though Sun anticipates that will likely rise to 2,000 kilos a week by June. He said that that kind of production is possible because the system capabilities and the yields they've been able to achieve in their R&D greenhouse.

“We're able to get good yields with our hydroponic system,” said Sun. “We can get about 50 kilos of iceberg lettuce per square meter and about 45 kilos of cherry tomatoes per square meter.” For now, they're focusing on crops they can sell to large chain restaurants that need large quantities of high-quality products like lettuce, tomatoes and bok choy. But Sun noted that their system is adaptable to a number of crops and climates.

“The system we've chosen is purposefully low-tech, so it's easy to work with,” said Sun. “It's a very flexible system that can also grow rice and seed potatoes, and we're developing alliances with universities to do serious research into hydroponics and growing additional crops.” He added that that kind of investment in research has already paid off.

The NWP6 managementboard: Ben Long, Gaurav Sahni, Kelly LeFevbre, Mohammed Al-Barwani, Lorenzo Belmonte, Michael Sun and Jim Orr.

“Through our R&D in our Delhi greenhouse we're able to get high yields. If there are growers that are interested in more information about these production figures or any other additional information on the possibilities of hydroponic growing in India, do not hesitate to contact us.”
