Current Agri-Fishery Solar Startup Teams

KRETA stands for "Khmer Renewable Energy Technology for Aquaculture''. The team focuses on modernizing fish farming through solar technology. The business aims to provide a reliable solar energy solution to supply water pumps and air pumps in the fish tank. The system uses smart automation to optimize water quality conditions of specific types of fish farming.
Cambodian farmers traditionally farm shrimp in a cement tank that's not easy to move and difficult to control water quality, causing yields to decline . In addition, there is a loss of shrimp resources in the Tonle Sap meaning farmers may need to turn to farmed fish. This business aims to develop a user-friendly shrimp kit which is easy to move and does not need a large space. This solution will help farmers to manage their production efficiently.
Agriculture Techniques wants to solve the problem of low agri-fishery production and high electricity cost for farmers in rural areas. Their business aims to modernize the agriculture techniques in Cambodia by introducing the solar operated aerators for intensive aquaculture.
