Hydroponic Green Forage (HGF) makes it possible to raise livestock in relatively small, resource-constrained areas.
How does your innovation work?
In Anchonga, one of the poorest districts of Peru. Overgrazing livestock, a common source of livelihoof in these areas, also represents the single most important cause of environmental degradation in the Andes. Stromme Foundation and Tierra de Niños will adapt a technological solution known as Hydroponic Green Forage (HGF) to cultivate grass from barley in greenhouses on multi-level racks.

Stage 1: Ideation

Compared to the common practice of cultivating fodder grass (e.g. alfalfa), HGF can produce up to 2000 times more feed per m2, while using 150 times less water. This makes it possible to raise livestock in relatively small, resource-constrained areas, which has several economic, social and environmental and advantages.
