Causing a biotech buzz in insect farming
Hexafly produces a range of sustainable, natural commodities
through insect farming. They take in the raw material
bioproduct and use insects to upcycle that waste into valuable sustainable
products such as organic fertiliser, high protein animal feed, sustainable
insect oil and natural chicken feed.
insect farming is the most efficient form of farming in the world in terms of
the amount of protein produced per square metre and resources needed. There is
also a 90% reduction in CO2 emissions
compared with other farming methods and it is also the most efficient when it
comes to water usage.
Farmers and unemployed Pilots have teamed up for a Win Win this harvest!
Harvest is finally underway and it's looking like a bumper crop coming off after years of drought. One of the big issues facing Farmers is the lack of workforce.
