TI partnered with AgriArctic Yukon Inc. to develop and test the Agridome; a food production system that integrates a number of innovative technologies. The Agridome is a partially automated aeroponics facility designed to be compatible with renewable energy sources.
Food security is a growing concern for northern communities, and Technology Innovation (TI) is exploring affordable technologies to support food production in the North.
Over the 2015/16 winter season several vegetables were grown which included: lettuce, tomatoes, basil, kale and swiss chard. For additional information and updates please visit the Agri-Arctic website.
