Botswana: Government throws weight behind hydroponics project

Department of Crop Production deputy director, Mr Barutwa Thebenala has assured the directors of OLHydro Veggie that government will support them.

Mr Thebenala said this at the recent launch of OLHydro Veggie, a company which specialises in supplying hydroponic systems.

"Global warming dictates a change in crop production methods in order to produce continuously, therefore production structures such as tunnels and greenhouses will help abate the effects of climate by ensuring continuous production.

This project will contribute to food security in Botswana.

It will also diversify the economy and contribute to the growth of the horticultural sector," he said.

Mr Thebenala said government would continue to support hydroponic businesses, and urged Batswana to try their hand at it.
