RDI has partnered with Peter Chege Gichuku and Hydroponics Africa Limited to supply GrowStream, RDI’s incredible new plant-responsive system to the region. With a rising population of nearly 50 million and one of the world’s fastest-growing economies, Kenya is becoming a leader for its region and all of Africa. Drought, food production, and sustainability remain top of mind for leaders throughout the country, RDI and Hydroponics Africa Limited are bringing an incredible solution to meet the growing needs in Kenya.
Peter and his team are specialists in hydroponics and vertical farming but saw the immense potential that GrowStream could bring to farmers and growers, both commercially and the average small farmer. Many areas don’t yet have reliable, pressurized water. This means many small growers pay a premium to have water trucked in- or have to haul water in manually. GrowStream only requires ultra low-pressure for optimal performance: a raised water tank can effectively generate enough pressure for GrowStream to operate optimally.
RDI traveled to Kenya to work with Peter and his team, training and implementing various installations. After just a month, plant health and production are already showing notable signs of improvement.
