Vertical Farming Systems

With the ever increasing urban population, space is no longer an option, arable land continues to be elusive and people are finding it difficult to have gardens where they can grow food for subsistence or commercial purposes. Vertical Farming Technology is key to increasing agricultural productivity by overcoming limited spaces to increase agricultural productivity.
Ukulima Tech (UT) specializes in the design, fabrication and installation of Vertical Farming systems, tower gardens and kitchen gardens. Vertical farming as a component of agriculture is the practice of cultivating food within a house, greenhouse, and limited garden space or on any vertically inclined surfaces with multi-level growing systems for year round growing of leafy green vegetables and fruits. It increases food supplies with minimum inputs of land, labor, machinery and water and can be easily set up.

Regardless of where you live, you can take advantage of some of the many benefits vertical gardening offers, key being access to fresh healthy food and bringing a sense of nature’s beauty to your home even in the most dense city environment. The technology meets many challenges faced by urban and traditional farmers including limited gardening space, pest and weed control. As most people live in urban areas, UT innovative design ideas are a key to make the most of the space you have. What can be grown in the system:

  • VEGETABLES: AMARANTH, BEANS, BEETROOT, CHILIES, COURGETTE, COLLARDS, CUCUMBER,CUPSICUM, EGGPLANT, FENNEL, KALE, LEEKS, LETTUCE, ONIONS, PEAS, RADISH, SPINACH,
    STRAWBERRY, SWISS CHARD, TOMATOES
  • INDIGENOUS VEGETABLES: COWPEA LEAVES (KUNDE), JUTE (MRENDA), PUMPKIN LEAVES(SEVEVE, MALENGE LEAVES), AMARANTHUS (TERERE), SPIDER PLANT (SAGET, SAGA), BLACK NIGHT SHADE (MANAGU, OSUGA), CROTOLARIA (MITOO).
  • HERBS:BASIL, CELERY, CORIANDER, CHIVES, DILL, FENNEL, GARLIC, MARJORAM, MINT,
    OREGANO, SAGE, TARRAGON, THYME

Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA)

Through the ages, farmers have used indigenous knowledge and traditional coping strategies to adapt to changes in weather and climatic conditions. Currently, increasing erratic climate variability is making it difficult for farmers to keep up.

CSA is an initiative that provides climate information service to promote delivery of accessible, timely, localized and relevant climate related information giving details like weather forecasts, anticipated climate risks or hazard and agro advisories that can assist vulnerable communities to tackle climate change uncertainty and empower the communities to take action, withstand impact of climate change as well as adapt and build resilience to climate change through the use of understandable climate information facilitated by dissemination through local dialects.

This gives communities confidence in choosing when best to plant, which crop varieties to plant under the prevailing climatic conditions as well as make informed decisions in climate sensitive areas. The initiative therefore exploits the opportunities for reducing climate risks particularly in areas where adaptive capacity is weaker.
