Green Hygienics Management Discuss Strategic Plan and Vertical Farming for Global Food Crisis

LAS VEGAS, April 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Hygienics (OTC:GRYN) the company is pleased to announce that is implementing a strategic plan to develop residential and commercial indoor growing systems (vertical farms) to provide fresh fruits and vegetables to global markets utilising its proprietary aeroponic growing system.

Management has extensive expertise in indoor horticulture and vertical farming. Requiring no natural sun light or soil these systems can be in operation and producing anywhere in the world 365 days per year. Green Hygienics vertical farming using aeroponic technology uses 90-95% less water and yields 70 -80 times the produce per square foot compared to traditional farming. The system mists water and nutrients directly onto the roots in a controlled environment dramatically reducing spoilage while keeping the farm bug free and 100% organic.

The company’s target market for vertical farming is currently China and SE Asia where the company has extensive business relationships and fresh fruits and vegetables can be scarce and expensive. Green Hygienics has identified a long list of fruits, leafy greens, sprouts and herbs that are ideally suited to vertical farming for these markets.

On a macro level by the year 2050, nearly 80% of the earth’s population will reside in urban centers. Applying the most conservative estimates to current demographic trends, the human population will increase by about 3 billion people during the interim. An estimated 1.09 billion hectares of new land (about 20% more land than is represented by the country of Brazil) will be needed to grow enough food to feed them, if traditional farming practices continue as they are practiced today. At present, throughout the world, over 80% of the land that is suitable for raising crops is in use. Historically, some 15% of that has been laid waste by poor management practices.

Green Hygienics will continue to deploys its indoor horticulture technology and expertise to develop long term solutions for this global crisis.

Over the next quarter the company’s website will be updated to reflect its new direction.
