Daiwa House‘s Agri-Cube aims to enable more people to have access to fresh vegetables, without the need for large outdoor spaces. The small unit, which fits in a parking space, can grow around 10,000 vegetables every year at a running cost of only 45 cents per vegetable.

The Agri-Cube requires little maintenance or attention to the hydroponic system and lighting. The steel frame pod is delivered ready to use, with hydroponic equipment, air conditioning, heat-exchanging ventilation system, and special growth lights. It also features anti-rust treatment and insulation in the floor, walls, and ceiling. Solar panels and air curtains can be fitted as optional extras.

The Agri-Cubes are initially being marketed to restaurants but could also be useful for housing complexes, hotels, and organic food suppliers. Check out DigInfo‘s video overview of the Agri-Cube below:
