HAYSAVER HaySaver is a smart agricultural, IoT (Internet of Things) service. It is a solution to spontaneous hay bale combustion and allows the monitoring of the nutritional value of hay. Throughout the world, hay bale combustion is a common occurrence, resulting in devastating losses to livestock and food sources. The nutritional value of feed is also important for the LWG of animals. This phenomenon occurs due to specific environmental conditions which causes the hay to ignite internally without an external source of ignition. A complex series of biological events and chemical reactions cause the temperature and moisture levels to increase and a fire can occur.  Website / Facebook / Twitter

SMALLFARMS With the world’s population expected to reach 9.8 billion people by 2050, there is a growing need to find alternative protein sources.  Current methods of livestock farming are unsustainable to keep up with the growing worldwide demand for food, especially protein. Traditional livestock, particularly cattle, are damaging to the environment and produce 1/5th of the world’s greenhouse gasses. Insect farming is a viable alternative to traditional livestock farming, as it is more sustainable and environmentally-friendly, along with insects being naturally high in protein. Insects require far fewer resources than cattle, including feed, water, and space. Crickets are highly nutritious, with large amounts of protein and fewer fats. They also contain many minerals, in particular iron, calcium and magnesium. Small Farms aims to design a table-top cricket farm for people to grow their own super-food at home.  Instagram / Facebook / Twitter
