Substantive research determined the United States (U.S.) is facing a critical need for a sustainable supply of healthy food to supplement traditional agriculture driven by multiple supply constraints to meet demand; particularly by those most in need. On the supply side, U.S. agricultural crop production has been based on a planning-to-plate process to meet demand estimates for the coming year that is a direct function of available arable land sufficient for food production. To meet the demand for a sustainable and healthy food supply over time will take an approach that currently does not exist.
The problem has become more complex due to COVID 19, and the escalating need to access a sustainable food supply with healthy and organic options. Coupled with the COVID-related issue is the impact on sustaining a healthy, viable food supply chain which has been exacerbated, putting additional constraints on the integrity of U.S. agriculture to meet demand in an ever-changing global climate. Particularly affected are the healthy food needs of fresh food banks, hospitals, low-income retirement living facilities, nursing homes, public schools, low-income rural communities, and faith-based organizations on a sustainable basis.
This problem required “out of the box thinking” to deliver a “game-changing” solution. The result and solution AGRONOMICS
The AGRONOMICS value proposition is to provide a
Sustainable Food Source integrated with Energy Self-Sufficiency by Optimizing Alternative Energy Sources which Greatly Reduces Facility Carbon Footprint Creates Economies of Scale Located on Less than Desirable Land or in a Vacant Industrial/Commercial Building Facilities with Access to Major Highway and Proximate Location to Markets
AGRONOMICS addresses the needs of society and creates a sustainable platform for the future providing for efficient crop cultivation while significantly reducing carbon footprint and increasing sustainability. Rising consumer demand for sustainable food supplies, both domestically and globally, that has demand inelasticity, reduces operational costs, and increases supply chain efficiencies within the COVID-19 era has created the increased need for a sustainable food supply resistant to national economic disruptions, such as conflict, terror, natural disasters, and pandemics.
Agronomics reduces the land requirement of traditional or even regenerative food crop production, solves the indoor farming problem of power cost, provides a greener and healthier approach to food production, and significantly reduces the carbon footprint of traditional industrial/commercial food production, processing, and storage. Alternative energy sources are becoming more economical and adaptable to meeting consistent energy needs and proving to have viable commercial application for energy generation.
