Given the hostility of most of Namibia's landscape for conventional agriculture, DSBE's Intellectual Property Research & Development Department will focus its efforts on adapting global best practices in underground and enclosed agriculture for Namibia.
One avenue it will consider would be to convert some of Namibia's extensive mines into underground farms using nutrient film hydroponics under LED lighting. Such technology would also be considered along with more conventional techniques in above ground yet enclosed agriculture.
