LOS ANGELES – Sustainable Microfarms, Inc. (SMF) has developed new technology to ignite the growing industry and help farmers, big and small, grow their product more quickly, with less effort, and at a considerable financial gain. From greenhouses in the desert to vertical farms located near dense urban centers, SMF not only affects how, but also where we can grow food. With the shortening of food supply chains, these technological advances in hydroponic farming will reduce spoilage, time to consumer, transportation costs, and oil consumption.

Sustainable Microfarms created their flagship product - the Genesis dosing controller - to fulfill the vision of a de-centralized urban culture, be allowing residential and industrial purpose growers to have all-in-one self-sustaining gardens. The Genesis monitors plant life and growth, dosing the garden with nutrients, water, and pH solutions (customizable by the grower), using 90% less water and 70% fewer nutrients, while generating 10 times the output, of manual farming techniques. Comparable systems cost 4-5 times as much as the Genesis, making this type of system inaccessible to most.

Looking ahead, Sustainable Microfarms founders envision this game-changing technology as a way to eradicate food scarcity in arid countries that lack potable water. Many currently import much of their food supply and suffer in times of drought and war. As Sanjay Rajpoot, founder and initial product engineer states, "I have been working on humanitarian missions since the age of eight. What always struck me was the disparity in simple access to food and water. I knew there had to be a way to change this through technology. Our ultimate goal is to provide the tools to empower and enable these countries to generate their own food supplies with their limited resources, and systems like the Genesis can do just that."

To promote awareness of these scarcity issues worldwide, and speed production of the initial line, SMF will be launching a Kickstarter campaign on Wednesday, July 17th. Those interested can visit www.kickstarter.com and search "Sustainable Microfarms". Through the Genesis dosing controller, numbers pumpbox, and many more upcoming microfarms products, Sustainable Microfarms will fuel a new generation of food, farmers, and healthy growing for all.
