The aim of the project is to make it possible for everyone to eat organic food and stop pollution of the Earth with chemicals of agriculture, by creating a mass production of ATF equipment for home and industrial year-round plant growing in enclosed spaces using the developed technology of automatic, thrifty growing for consumers around the world. For this, we have developed a concept for the creation of a global ecosystem of healthy food in which all users who want to consume or buy products grown by ATF equipment will be united.
ATF devices provide an automatic growth of tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, lettuce, cannabis and many other plants. The ATF technique requires minimal customer involvement during in the process of vegetation and does not require any specific knowledge in the field of agronomy. A specially designed LED lamp not only saves electricity but is also capable of simulating a spectrum close to sunlight, which greatly speeds up the process of photosynthesis in plants. Thanks to the perfectly selected temperature regime for each crop, automatic irrigation with the addition of the necessary nutrient minerals and optimum moisture, the average crop yield of the ATF device is higher than the yield of greenhouse crops and crops grown outdoors. The solution recuperation system and pointwise dosing of the necessary nutrients allows to use all the fertilizers as intended, and the biofilter with bacteria constantly saturates the solution with beneficial bacteria, thus the system is self-sufficient, which allows to reduce the effect on the ecological component of the Earth to zero.
About the company
Historically, the company was formed in 2012 from a group of people with experience in various fields of activity, where each person is a specialist in his field. The team includes specialists from the areas of plant growing, agronomy, agrochemistry, programming, design, management, marketing, government and finance. This allowed us to create a strong team of like-minded people and to develop a unique product for 5 years of painstaking work.
Since 2012 we have been developing and experimenting with growing various crops based on hydroponics, aeroponics and drip irrigation. With our developments we took part in the innovative exhibition in Skolkovo and won the prize. In 2014 we received our first patent for a model for growing plants by hydroponics, in which the principle of rational use of the area of the premises was realized.
The focus of the company was the creation of automated industrial equipment for the cultivation of tomatoes and peppers. The first prototype was created, which had artificial lighting and auto watering. Its dimensions were large, but the number of seats was not. Then there was an idea to make the equipment compact for use at home. So there were first prototypes of ATF home equipment. In 2016 an expensive equipment was purchased to create our own large phyto laboratory in order to study the physiology of plants and improve the consumer qualities of the products. At this stage, the cultivation of strawberries, lettuce, arugula, basil and other greens has been specifically studied. In 2017 fully automated systems for growing crops were introduced and three additional applications for patents were filed, which are currently being registered. Specialists of the company regularly participate in thematic scientific and business conferences, conduct training courses. One of the successfully implemented projects is the creation of a business for mobile production of fresh, environmentally friendly micro-greenery in several cities.
To date, we have a pre-production version of ATF Home. In the third quarter of 2018, we plan to produce a fully finished model for sale. We plan to attract investors' funds within the framework of the ICO. After the ICO, which ends on July 31, 2013, the serial production of ATF Home is launched. Entering the US and Canada markets is planned before the end of 2018, parallel to the start of sales of equipment in Europe. The launch of the production of the industrial plant will begin after the tests, which we plan to complete before the end of 2018. ATF Industrial equipment is planned to be supplied all over the world, especially in areas with unfavorable climatic conditions.
