Brendan commented on Urban Rooftop Hydroponics

Interesting! Hydroponics is usually deployed indoors where there is control over the environment so I guess an external system may lose more water and need adapting to  cope with direct sun as well as other local factors?


Brendan commented on Lightweight Vacuum Container for grains

Hi Sanjeez. Removing the moisture prior to storing would seem to be critical if this is to work so maybe the solution needs to include both drying and storing?


Brendan commented on The Sun Barter

Agricultural  co-operatives are a common way to share costs and benefits of capital intensive storage and processing beyond the financial means of any individual farmer. They may also attract 'cheap' funding and can scale quickly to have a real impact. Might be worth considering?
