Mauritius increases hydroponic cultivation
The Republic of Mauritius continues to develop its own agriculture based on the use of hydroponic technology. The African island has already more than 300 multi-level, specialized and fully automated farms.
The main products are tomatoes, lettuce, bell peppers, melons and cucumbers. And a coconut fiber is used as a necessary substrate. But already now farmers from Mauritius say they are getting harvests which are 15-20 times higher than the normal level. The island farmers successfully provide the internal needs of the population in fresh vegetables and in a short time plan to export their products.
