Madar Farms


Madar Farms is a UAE based AgriTech startup addressing Food and Water Security in the Arab region. We provide our tech for all, and grow ourselves. Our tech uses 95% less water and land than conventional farming, making us one of the most efficient and sustainable produce growers in the GCC. We provide value for stakeholders such as governments, farmers, restaurants, and supermarkets. Consumers trust Madar Farms because our all-natural produce is insecticide and pesticide free.

Less than 5% of the GCC’s land is arable and permanent cropland. Conventional farming is resource intensive, requiring vast amounts of water. Agriculture represents over half of our water consumption. This is unsustainable and detrimental to our water resources. Now is the time to transform the region’s agricultural ecosystem. That is where we come in.

We provide and use complete farms built within recycled shipping containers. These insulated containers are equipped with hydroponic systems that enable us to grow 2 acres worth of produce inside one 40ft container using less than 40L of water per day. Growing in a sealed and controlled environment enables us to shorten the growing cycle. Automated nutrient delivery systems and smart technology takes the guesswork out of farming by allowing you to monitor and control growing conditions (e.g. temperature, CO2 levels) via an app.

While we build our network of container farms, we are also developing an automated plant factory with large-scale capacity (over 3 tonnes / day). This will enable us to leap toward achieving food and water security. Over time, we will diversity from leafy greens to berries and legumes as we seek to cover the complete nutritional profile.

We are dreamers but we are also business minded people. We are looking to build an ecosystem of sustainability. Our initiatives span thought leadership development, educational programs, and improving coordination between industry and government. Together, we can make deserts green.
