China Daily Points to AEssenseGrows as an Innovator Addressing Global Food Challenges
China Daily is pointing to AEssenseGrows’ approach to smart farms as the type of innovation that can help solve global food challenges. The article by journalist Lia Zhu, titled, “Innovation needs to take root to meet globe's food challenges,” says technology “may provide answers to tackle shortages” and explains how AEssenseGrows' aeroponic system could help address the issue.
The article quotes Robert Chen, founder, president and CEO of AEssenseGrows, describing the benefits of the tech-driven AEtrium aeroponic grow system. "The system can accelerate plant growth with intelligent sensors that collect, create, and monitor nutrient recipe progress," Chen says in the piece, adding, “We can harvest lettuce in just 12 days after it is planted.”
The article also quotes John Hartnett, founder and CEO of SVG Partners, a Silicon Valley investment, technology and advisory firm. "Labor and water shortages, combined with increasing needs for food security and food safety, are driving the demand for innovation in food and agriculture in China," Hartnett says in the article.
