ACBC Victoria is pleased to invite you to the official signing ceremony of a new Joint Venture Partnership between our members, E Agri Business, with Golden Lake Eco Farming and the Yixing Government. 

E Agri Pty Ltd, members of the Victorian Government and official visiting members of the Yixing Government will present the latest innovation from E Agri - a state-of-the-art hydroponic vertical growing system now confirmed to be installed with Golden Lake Eco Farming in Yixing, China.

Please join us for an invaluable networking opportunity and to hear about this fascinating and unique project between Australian and Chinese business.

About E Agri and their new system: 
The E Agri system is a lightweight, modular design for hydroponics that allows highly intensive cropping and efficient energy use in a system that is free of pollutants from soil, water or contaminants in air. Locally, E Agri are working with Australian Fresh Leaf and have partnered with Chisholm Institute to set up hydroponic research and training facilities – one of the most advanced in the world. It is here that E Agri completes research and systems training and full implementation of the E Agri program occurs. Through a combination of owned and operated sites along with a planned franchising arrangement, E Agri intends to use these sites as commercial facilities to develop in the Chinese market, setting up in provinces across China.

E Agri’s innovative farming model gives growers to ability to:
  • stabilise 365 day production
  • reduce wastage of crop
  • increase quality control
  • reduce packaging costs
  • reduce buy-in of stock during winter periods
  • maintain a flexible multi-layer system to simultaneously grow 50+ varieties of produce
  • trace the path of growth, from seed to consumer; reduce food miles
  • analyse crop data to make informed decisions
  • reduce labour input and costs
  • can be retrofitted into existing glasshouses
  • generates more produce by weight per m square, at a lower cost per unit
  • ongoing training systems and technical support
