The FarmTech Society (FTS) ASBL is an international non-profit association that unites and supports the Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) industry, seeking to strengthen the sector through the development and implementation of resilient and future-proof methods and technologies for indoor growing.
The FarmTech Society (FTS) works around 3 key pillars of activity – Education, Standards, & Policy. We work with our members in all of these areas, to drive forward topics and initiatives which create benefit for them and for the CEA industry as a whole.
The FarmTech Society (FTS) Supports the Sustainable Development Goals
This is how we think Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) can help with each of these goals, but we recognise that all of them will require engagement with wider frameworks, networks and stakeholders. We invite the latter, who would be interested in working with us on any of these SDGs, to get in touch with us.
FTS coordinates the CEA industry’s efforts towards reclaim our food: wholesome and nutritious for all. On-going depletion of soils’ organic matter and genetic selections have impoverished food quality and reduced its diversity by favoring few marketable breeds. CEA allows for tight nutrient management throughout the growing process, towards producing nutrient-rich, healthy food.
