Brazilian Venture CBA Sementes Licenses Seed Potato-Growing Aeroponic Systems to Empower Farmers
While most of the crops are replicated using true seeds, potatoes are planted using so-called seed potatoes. The conventional seed potatoes which farmers can buy on the market are of low quality, they produce poor yields and require unnecessary amounts of fertiliser. For the farmer, this is not only frustrating but also threatens their livelihood.
Paying attention to this scenario, 2019/20 TFF Finalist CBA Sementes developed a business with a purpose. Using aeroponic control systems, machine learning, and AI, they are improving seed potato production to give farmers resources to produce and plant healthy seeds in the field, improve yield, increase incomes and tackle food security.
In this interview, we talked to founder and CEO Lucas Moreira to learn more about CBA Sementes’ aeroponic systems.
