KUALA LUMPUR: Agroz Group Sdn Bhd has launched its 8,000 sq ft indoor farm, Agroz EduFarm-in-City at the AEON Alpha Angle.
The EduFarm will open for weekend tours from September 2023 to showcase how its technology produces quality, clean and pesticide-free vegetables.
In a statement, Agroz said the EduFarm has its own experience centre and activity room to demonstrate to children and families especially how vegetable farming is possible right in the heart of the city.
It added that the EduFarm is utilising controlled environment agriculture (CEA) and digital technologies developed by the company.
