Delphy, Saline Farming and Nectaerra have started an agricultural project in Kenya since September 2018.

Dutch scientists have found a method for growing certain crops on salinized, non-arable farmland. This is truly an innovation, since food production on salinized soil has always been considered impossible. It was discovered that specific varieties of potatoes, carrots, red onions, white cabbage and broccoli actually thrive when irrigated in a special way, with salt water at the roots.

Water management is one of the greatest challenges facing the agrifood sector today. Worldwide, less and less water per head of the population is going to be available for food production. In 2050 it will be a third of what it was in 1950. This is easy to explain, since in the same period the world’s population will have grown from 2.5 billion to 9 billion people. But there is reason for optimism.
