In a move towards sustainable agriculture, the Innovation Centre in Agritechnology for Advanced Bioprocessing (ICA) at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Pagoh Campus has successfully implemented a solar-powered system for its hydroponic farming. This project is headed by Assoc. Prof. Ir. Ts. Dr. Dalila Mat Said, Research Fellow for ICA and her research team.

This cutting-edge initiative not only underscores our commitment to environmental stewardship but also showcases the potential of renewable energy in transforming traditional farming practices. By harnessing the power of the sun, we’re not just cultivating crops; we’re cultivating a brighter, greener future for our community.

With solar panels adorning our farm, we’re reducing our carbon footprint while maximizing energy efficiency. This innovation isn’t just about sustainability; it’s about efficiency and resilience in the face of climate change.

The benefits include reduced operating costs, increased crop yields, and a more reliable food supply chain. Moreover, by embracing renewable energy, we’re inspiring our students, farmers, and local communities to embrace innovation and environmental consciousness in their own endeavors.

As pioneers in agritechnology, we’re proud to lead the way towards a more sustainable, prosperous future for agriculture. Join us in this exciting journey towards a greener promising future.
