Bushell’s Solar Grow 1 (SG1) is set to transform food production and was recently named “British and World Invention of the Year.”
Once on site, SG1 analyses soil and water resources and immediately begins crop growth.
It fits a shipping container and is fully habitable with toilet, shower and detachable tent. It comes with “plug and go” deep well pumps and a rain collection system, and can even desalinate seawater.
Mr Bushell, who set up a company Boundless Horizons to develop and market the product, said: “The beauty of SG1 is that it is fully self-contained and is so easy to use that even someone with only a passing knowledge of agriculture can be trained in its use within hours.”
