Chandigarh-based start up to promote organic farming


Chandigarh, Mar 3: A city-based start-up Trestor has said it will promote urban organic farming and community intranet as part its plans to promote community initiatives.

“Trestor has embarked on two community-driven initiatives aimed at promoting urban organic farming and community intranet, for which the company will provide all the necessary infrastructure and technical support.

To get going, all one needs is a smart phone, on which one can download the mobile application developed by the company,” Trestor founder Kunal Dixit said here.

Under community-driven organic farming, Trestor will provide communities 10 ft by 5 ft organic gardens, where they can grow fresh, healthy and cancer-free food.

With its unique crop sensor technology, community members in households need not devote more than 15 minutes a day to tending to their crop. Harvesting the produce at its peak is an added advantage, he said claiming that an area of 1 sq m is all you need to produce 20 kg of food a year.

Under its second initiative- Trestor Community Network (TCN), it will provide free-to-use community-powered local communication and media sharing Wi-Fi network that helps communities become more self-reliant and stay connected in case of emergencies like power outage or internet disruption.

“TCN has a system of tipping the uploader about the content and a community-driven approach to automatically reporting and flushing out spam or copyright material so as to involve the entire community in keeping their TCN spam and piracy-free,” he said.
