Indoor Farming & Hydroponics

Challenging environmental conditions in the sun drenched regions of the Middle East have restricted the ability of growers to deliver a broad range of crops. Both Riyadh and Abu Dhabi have recently invested in indoor farming solutions and food producers are jostling to increase competitiveness.
