Farmer harvesting at urban farm in Stockholm, Sweden

Farm to fork with solar-powered drip irrigation

In order to increase food production, reduce time spent on irrigation without effecting the environment Spowdi and Swedish Brasseries initiated a project with solar-powered drip irrigation in focus. The aim is to irrigate the whole farm and get increased yields and at the same time reduce energy consumption, CO2 emissions, and water volumes spent on irrigation. The system is just up and running and reports from the project will be released as the project is evaluated.

We hope to inspire other players to initiate similar initiatives by leading the development and showing that it is possible to do the right thing without sacrificing the profitability requirements of the business.

Anders Andersson, Spowdi’s VP.
