Drop Inc. in Japan came up with an idea of hiring parents for its cherry tomato farm that offers family-friendly working hours. Moreover, this company has greenhouses that integrate the Imec Film Farming method in growing tomatoes.
Furthermore, this film farming method uses hydrogel gel to grow crops with less water and produce high natural sugar content. Also, it can boost the nutrient contents of crops such as vitamin C, lycopene, and amino acids.
Drop Farm also has a cloud-based service that allows them to remotely control its greenhouses’ temperature, humidity, and wind direction.
