A major US city tasked a farming cooperative with ending a regional food desert, which is an area lacking access to groceries and fresh produce. The co-op built multiple “urban farms” using a hydroponic system, and the farms needed to minimize water usage based on water consumption regulations. Since the project was grant-funded, it had a tight budget. By combining SeaConnect hardware and SeaCloud software, the farm achievied its goals. Crop yield increased and operational costs decreased, helping eradicate the food desert.
