Water is the most precious resource on our planet. About 60 % of the freshwater consumption can be attributed to current agricultural practices. According to the IPCC, agriculture is responsible for 31 % of emissions effecting the climate and there is a heavy use of pesticides and fertilizers. Until the food ends up on our plates, it goes through long transportation routes with energy-intensive cold storages. In addition, climate change, extreme weather events and a fast-growing world population challenge traditional agriculture.
With the desire to improve our situation in a sustainable way, the PHYTONIQ was founded in Jannuary 2017.
