Hello, We're Red Sea Farms. Nice to meet you!
Freshwater constitutes only 2.5% of all water on earth, and 70% of all freshwater consumed on the planet is for agriculture. This results in an unsustainable depletion of precious freshwater resources and disregards the potential uses of saltwater, which makes up the other 97.5% of the water on earth.
However, the majority of conventional crops are salt intolerant, making irrigation with saltwater unfeasible, while the alternative, saltwater desalination, is quite energy- and cost-inefficient.
This is where Red Sea Farms comes in. We offer practical solutions to help shift the global water demand in agriculture from freshwater to saltwater.
This is evident in our smart saltwater evaporative cooling systems, which save approximately 80-95% freshwater in comparison with typical evaporative cooling systems, and use 20 times less energy compared with mechanical cooling systems (e.g. air conditioners). Our non-GMO plants that have been bred and grafted to be salt-tolerant, decreasing the dependency on freshwater and making their irrigation energy and cost-efficient.
Moreover, we offer pesticide-free produce that’s grown from our saltwater-irrigated plants, using our smart saltwater evaporative cooling systems. But it isn't just more environmentally sustainable compared to conventional produce, it is also tastier and more nutritious! A third party lab test showed our saltwater-irrigated tomatoes were up to 2x sweeter compared to the freshwater-irrigated counterpart (based on the Brix test), and had up to 2x the amount of Vitamin C.
