Pioneering arid climate change agribusiness, Sundrop Farms planned to expand one of its sites in Port Augusta, South Australia to develop 20 hectares of greenhouses, using desalinated seawater to irrigate the horticultural produce.

The ‘Sundrop System’ involves solar power to create heat, electricity and desalinated water used to feed and power the greenhouse operations.

The project would deliver world-class greenhouse infrastructure, using renewable resources and offering an alternative option for growing sustainable local produce.
