Kuala Lumpur company JustGood currently has a 4ha land in Batang Berjuntai. It cultivates ten types of vegetables, with nine grown indoors and one outdoors, using various planting methods to produce fresh vegetables using smart farming methods.

"We start production at Batang Berjuntai farm in February 2021. Simply put, we are practitioners of precision agriculture or smart precision farming," managing director Zachary Aman said.

Currently, the farm produces 970 kilogrammes of nine different types of vegetables a month via one smart greenhouse and one conventional greenhouse.

The company aims to increase the number of smart greenhouses between 4-6 by the end-2021 at its Batang Berjuntai farm.

Each smart greenhouse is about 6,000 sq ft and can produce 1.6 tonnes of fresh vegetables a month.

Zachary pointed out that JustGood builds on an efficient food distribution network, from its farms to its smart distribution centre to the consumers' kitchens and plates.

The ecosystem is divided into components covering the 'first to the last mile' and efficiently reaching a particular consumption point.

"It is all about producing quality and chemical pesticide-free food in a shorter chain that brings benefit to the people in the supply chain.
