Harnessing solar and wind power to feed nations


At Modern Terra we mimic temperate climate and conditions by utilizing our plentiful sunlight and wind resources to grow crops that normally wouldn’t grow in the tropics.This will to help ensure food security of small island developing states in disaster prone regions. Modern Terra’s implementation will also aid in reducing high food import bills and carbon emissions from shipping to remote SIDS.
To guarantee the aforementioned, Modern Terra will also be an educational and equipment resource for local farmers to start their own modern farms.
