The United Arab Emirates imports at least 80% of its food. A startup in the capital Abu Dhabi wants to help change that.
Launched in 2016, Pure Harvest Smart Farms is developing smart greenhouses, using technology to allow agriculture to flourish in the tough environment. For now, it only grows tomatoes.
The greenhouses use Dutch technology to grow tomatoes in the desert, with companies including Certhon Greenhouse Solutions, Priva, Koppert Biological Systems, Hatenboer Water, Royal Brinkman, and Rijk Zwaan.
