The grand event took place on Sunday, December 26, 2021, at Geetganga Farms in Mansar, Nagpur. As the event's Chief Guest, Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways of India, inaugurated the new project and delivered an inspirational and motivating speech to the participants.

The latest venture in Nagpur, which will be one of Asia's largest vertical farming projects, is the next step in A S AGRI AND AQUA LLP's huge growth in Maharashtra, and it intends to offer the great benefits of soil-based vertical farming technology to farmers in the Vidarbha area.

Drought, lack of rain, climate change, increased dependency on chemical fertilizers, crop failure, insufficient irrigation systems, crop variety limits, and financial challenges have afflicted the farmers for years. The advent of A S AGRI AND AQUA LLP's patented, revolutionary soil-based vertical farming technique provides enormous prospects to Vidarbha farmers.

Soil-based Vertical Farming poly-houses provide the ideal environment for cultivation, entering a new age in agriculture. Vertical farming consumes 85 percent less water and 99 percent less land, producing 100 acres of produce on one acre. 

The enclosed environment also enables temperature control and automated fertilizer management, reducing the danger of insect infestation and inclement weather while allowing year-round crop yields.

Aside from the Vertical Farm Poly-houses, A S AGRI AND AQUA LLP is introducing Skill-based Training and Placement Programs to the GNI Campus and Yuva Foundation Campus to improve agricultural expertise and provide new career prospects for Farmers and local youth.

This new initiative comes just three months after A S AGRI AND AQUA LLP unveiled a vertical farming and aquaculture project in Nanded, Marathwada. The firm also funded and engaged in the Smart Urban Farming Expo, which will be held in Delhi on November 27th and 28th, 2021. The Agro-Vision Exhibition was recently conducted in Nagpur from the 24th to the 27th of December 2021.

A S AGRI AND AQUA LLP has been at the forefront of Soil-Based Vertical Farming in India from its start, championing a revolution in the world of agriculture. The recently opened Nagpur Vertical Farming project marks a watershed moment for the firm and offers up new avenues for growth for the farmer community of Vidarbha.
