What is Precision Urban Agriculture

A new generation of agronomic techniques have the potential to revolutionize how we grow food.

Precision Urban Agriculture refers to a new range of agronomic techniques that sharply limit the inputs that are used to grow food.  By growing without soil; controlling environmental factors like lighting, temperature and humidity; and reducing the distance between production and consumers Precision Urban Agriculture can put healthy food on the plates of urban consumers and help our environment at the same time.
