New Steroids For Plants

With the rising food insecurity in Malaysia, more and more Malaysians are adopting gardening to grow their own produce and for some, agriculture has even become a profession. Even with inflation, the demand for fresh vegetables and fruits is constantly on the rise.

This is where Qarbotech intends to lend a helping hand with their product, QarboGrow. By increasing the efficiency of a plant’s photosynthesis process, they believe vegetable and fruit production will be increased by 30% among other benefits, including a 25% reduction in the crop cycle.
