Exciting news ahead for farmers in the Philippines. The Department of Science and Technology-Central Luzon (DOST-3) has announced a smart agriculture farming system in San Luis, Aurora.
In collaboration with the Aurora State College of Technology (ASCOT), DOST-3 has come up with a typhoon-resilient vertical indoor high-value crop production area.

The production system uses minimal water and soil than traditional farming, according to DOST Regional Director Julius Caesar V. Sicat. He further emphasizes that this facility uses solar panels to power lighting fixtures among other helpful features.
This is truly great news, especially for vegetable growers and farmers, as they do not have to worry about losing their crops when the typhoon season hits.
