- revolutionary technology for growing vegetables
The Agrocrooh represents an agrotechnical bridge moving around the central pillar. As needed, different types of tools are attached to the tool hinge, which moves along the bridge, creating a spiral-shaped line. It is powered by an electric motor and thanks to lower electricity and water consumption compared to conventional agriculture, it allows automation of work and reduces manual loads by up to 70%. We are constantly developing other modules to facilitate farming life, such as a complex system for the development of chasms or a picker truck.
Small Family Farm concept:
Small family farm in size of 2ha
5 bridges managing 15 circles
24 tons of vegetables among 52 species per year
feeds 64 4-member families
We want to inspire farmers to follow the path of sustainable agriculture and make it easier for them to do so with our proven revolutionary technology, as well as agronomic and entrepreneurial know-how. Let us turn dilapidated land together into fertile agro-rings! No shredding!
We focus on soil:
Unlike conventional soil cultivation, the agrocrooh system completely excludes use of heavy machinery because it causes soil compaction resulting in reduced rate of infiltration and drainage which means air and water erosion. Simply said, no tractors on our farm.
No artificial fertilizers nor biocides. Undesirable weeds are removed mechanically, dried in the sunlight and put back into the soil, enriching it as a very important organic component.
Reduction of Manual
Workload by 70%
Vegetables from Agrocrooh are very tasty and nutritious simply because they are grown in natural conditions. Janko Šlinský, author of agrocrooh system likes to say that his “veggies are more than just organic”.
Agrocrooh is based on community-supported agriculture(CSA). Sales happen within a closed community of regular clients. This allows to form multiple non-competing farms in all regions of the world. Human relationships are being strengthened and conditions for agrotourism developped. Thus this is also opportunity to support the return of life to the countryside.
Presenting and teaching the agrocrooh system at specialized high schools will help to train a strong generation of farmers prepared for new millennium. We already have to deal with numerous changes, not only in terms of climate and we are forced to rethink existing agrotechnical and agronomic practices. Soil revitalization takes time, literally years and family multigenerational farming seems to have great potential for success in the future.
The evolution of agriculture can be divided into following periods:
Manual soil cultivation with primitive tools.
Livestock used for ploughing.
Heavy machinery, GMO and chemicals (fertilizers and biocides) used to maintain mass production.
Elimination or reduced dosage of chemicals for so-called bio production, still using heavy mechanisms.
Sustainable agriculture, no chemicals nor heavy machinery used. High workload and time consumption. And to that we do have clear solution - AGROCROOH.
Inventor of Agrocrooh: Ján Šlinský
He basically made the first version of the mechanical gantry with his bare hands and he devoted his whole life to testing and improving it. In the meantime, he developped special agronomic practices for organic cultivation of 52 types of vegetables and herbs, as well as system of distribution within a closed circle of regular customers, which is intended to facilitate the establishment of quality interpersonal relationships. Healthy soil, good food and strong relationships are the main pillars of the Agrocrooh system.
