Advance the way we grow today, to live a better tomorrow.
Bifarm Tech is an American AgTech and CleanTech company. It specializes in precision aeroponics and digital climate controls. Its purpose is to address critical social and environmental problems of food security, local economy growth, and environmental sustainability. Its strategy is to utilize high-efficiency, high-yield farming technologies to make urban farming profitable and prosperous, in order to increase reliable food supplies and to boost local economy, all with minimum environmental footprints.
Precision Aeroponics & Digital Climate Controls
Use environment and nutrient uptake to shape crop quality profile consistently, replicable in all grow seasons and across multiple facilities.
Reliable, practical and precision TRUE aeroponics enabled by patented technology produces superior quality and more yield with less energy and water.
AI-powered automation simplifies operation complexity, eliminate repetitive work, and requires little training.
Quicker grow cycles
To ensure product-market fit, Bifarm develops technologies along with customers to better assist their goals: to replicate harvests with consistent quality profiles, to boost yields and save energy costs, and to automate and simplify operations. The customers include home growers, commercial operators, and also notable research institutes such as Cornell University AgriTech Center, the University of Florida, and the USDA Agriculture Research Service (ARS).
Bifarm holds key (granted and pending) utility patents for its innovative aeroponics cultivation, habitat environment controls, and AI/computer vision based management methods and systems.
Bifarm Tech's R&D has been supported by startup growth programs including NSF AgCorps, NYSERDA CleanTech Incubator via RIT VCI, NYSERDA EIR program run by Columbia University Technology Ventures, Endeavor Miami ScaleUp program, and Cornell University's Rev Manufacturing Hardware Accelerator. Bifarm Tech has also received customer discovery funds from the National Science Foundation I-Corps.
Plants require constant attention. Indoor plants often die due to negligence or improper care, and outdoor plants are often affected by weather, temperature, and unwanted visitors. It's difficult to create the perfect conditions for gardening without the proper tools. Our founder, Wanjun Gao, experienced these same issues time and time again. He decided to take matters into his own hands.
In 2017, Bifarm released the AeroKit, a partially assembled aeroponics package and one of the first publicly available personal high-pressure aeroponic kits on the market. Bifarm AeroKit has sparked interest among cultivators across the world, making a typically expensive and inaccessible technology available to the everyday grower.
In 2018, Bifarm released AeroXPS - the first reliable high-pressure aeroponics system in the market. On top of the AeroXPS technology, Bifarm released Future Farm grow systems - aeroponics system for commercial operations in late 2019.
In 2020, the AeroXPS platform based Future Farm aeroponics system was selected as a top 5 finalist for the SXSW Innovation Awards in the Climate, Culture & Social Impact Category.
In 2021, Bifarm was selected as a top 10 finalist for the S&P Global Energy Award as Emerging Technology of the Year.
