India and US hydroponics company start partnership

In recent years, hydroponics farming is gaining popularity across the world due to the higher yield it gives than the traditional farming systems and a host of other benefits. In hydroponics, 70 to 90% of water can be saved compared to soil cultivation, since water is re-circulated and reused. Other inputs too can be efficiently controlled and the system is not labour-intensive. In this method, crops are grown, without soil, by using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent.

Although many companies have started hydroponic units in India over the last decade, Farms2050 is the first company in India to start a hydroponic farm with advanced infrastructure and processes, having collaborated with AmHydro, a hydroponics company in the USA.

Basan Patil, a Pennsylvania State University graduate, founded Farms2050 in 2019 and currently heads it. It is located in Bengaluru, India's IT hub, and is the only end-to-end hydroponics company in India today. Farms2050 has developed India's superior indigenous structural systems in association with some of the world's hydroponics experts and emerged as a significant hydroponics player in India in a very short period. Around 15 acres of projects are in its order book for 2021-22.

Farms2050 is working on to set up India's first and the only indigenous, high tech climate-controlled Greenhouse by October 2021. It also aims to provide efficient and world-class hydroponics technology to aspiring hydroponic entrepreneurs at competitive pricing to make way for faster adoption of climate-controlled farming and hydroponics. In association with American Hydroponics, which provided internal technologies, Farms2050 hopes to make Karnataka the agriculture technology hub of India.
