Agritube / Semplified Hydroponics System

Agritube is an open source modular system of hydroponic cultivation, economically sustainable and with a low-tech approach in order to be suitable for education-poor contexts.
The materials required to realize the system are locally available in every market, as to guarantee the long-term sustainability, the modules can be implemented in series, creating a production unit that can be managed by a low-cost multi-familiar enterprise.
Agritube allows to reach 40kg of productivity per square meter per year also into developing countries, and to decrease by 90% water consumption for the production cycle compared to traditional agriculture.
