[About Exporting Overseas]
We think that SoBiC has a great potential to be the world's new standard of agricultural systems for the next generation due to serious climate changes, shortages of water and narrowing farming land all over the world. However, we cannot do business by just exporting our domestic products.  Because SoBiC has some of important factors and adjustments in order to run properly that are subject to the local environment, surrounding conditions as well as the business model for each respective user.  We would render our original techniques, deep experienced know-how and license to the potential overseas business partner.

SoBiC-PRO

SoBiC-PRO

A complete unit for mass production that can be easily expanded.
Test and verification kits for developing infrastructure systems for large scale production.
Just install it and you can start farming.
You can start with just one unit and expand it by simply connecting it with commercially available hoses.
Unlike facility cultivation or plant factories, you don't need to invest in expensive equipment and maintenance costs, so it's easy to rebuild even if you are struck by a disaster.
The principle of SoBiC is so simple that you can customize the size of the vessel (amount of medium) according to the plants you want to grow, your purpose and the installation environment.

Can be used year-round without a greenhouse

Even in the middle of winter (*1), winter vegetables can be grown without a greenhouse as long as the entire soil in the medium does not freeze.
*1:The inside of the SoBiC unit also retains heat, so even if the temperature goes down to minus 5 degrees Celsius at night, the entire culture medium is unlikely to freeze. In warm areas, many types of crops can be grown in winter. However, if there is little sunlight, growth is very slow.
It can be done "indoors" or in a "greenhouse" if the sun is available!
In that case, you can save a lot of money on utility bills for temperature control, etc.

Production capacity

It is easy to build small-scale, high-efficiency production facilities in a short period of time.

Tenfold increase in agricultural production efficiency!

Can be installed anywhere with maximum area efficiency as long as there is a sunny spot.
The fastest and most efficient way to respond to the increasingly serious food crisis, while providing consumers with safe and secure crops
Trials have begun in a variety of industries.
