of the future

We design and build innovative hydro-systems for profitable food production.

Vertical farming and aquaponics innovation

Smart Farmers develops and implements innovative systems for sustainable, profitable horticulture. We design vertical farming with LED technology and aquaponics systems to the needs of your organization or project. Produce renders year-round, independently of weather conditions, and is consistent and predictable. Water usage, artificial fertilizer and waste are strongly reduced and the end product is free from pesticides, locally produced and of highest quality.

  • Farm all year round;
  • Save water;
  • Fast rotation, dynamic system; fast payback;
  • Stable production environment, independent climate;
  • All parameters under control


Greenhouse cultivation

Greenhouse farmers worldwide are applying new technologies and optimize use of energy and resources.
We couple fish farming to our existing installation and have both systems co-operate intelligently.
