There is significant food wastage when vegetables/fruits are transported from the farm to the city. In some cases, this journey takes 3-4 days. This team devised a method of growing the crop in transit. Choosing a route that offers different soil type and water availability, a selection is made of crops that can avail of the best growing conditions with growth staggered across the journey to the selling location.
