Letlhabile Lekone - Student

Her idea is to grow vegetables using hydroponics system technology - This is growing plants in mineral nutrient solutions dissolved in water. The target market for her business would be towns and villages in Botswana. She believes that hydroponics technology will allow them to grow cheaper vegetables over a short period compared to conventional farming methods as they will be less prone to pest and diseases as well as protected from harsh weather conditions as are experienced in Botswana.
