7,5 years ago, I was chatting with a friend in a cafe. We were both industrialists. We didn’t know much about the environment, trees, insects, soil and water. We used to think that the issue of climate change was a bubble. While we were chatting, the subject came to the fact that both in our country and in many other countries, industrial production does not provide sufficient added value.
– Yes, we made money and developed individually with industrialism. But have our country and our people developed to the same extent as us?
– What will be the legacy we leave to this world when we die?
For this reason, we wanted to develop projects that would provide more added value and development for countries and their peoples.
– The big question was; What is the right investment for the development of countries and peoples? How do countries and their peoples develop together? My friend and I spent months thinking and researching on this subject. Finally, we came to the following conclusion;
– It is not enough to promote only a few areas for the development of countries. Neither industry, nor technology, nor construction, nor military investments provide development separately. In short, in order to develop, it is necessary to provide simultaneous connection, relationship, order and harmony between all fields. If such co-ordination is achieved, development can be achieved. In addition, development will be possible not by adapting to limited styles, but by thinking and acting without limits.
While considering and discussing the development areas of countries and peoples, we have found that a very important piece of the development puzzle has been overlooked. The impact of Agriculture and Forestry on development was Decisively underestimated. If there is no agriculture in a country, how can the food needs of the people be met? How to overcome hunger? If a country does not have forests, where can it find fresh air to breathe? Would it rain without forest and fruit trees? Wouldn’t water resources disappear without forests? How can you get rid of the impact of climate change without agriculture and forestry? Considering all this, we came to the conclusion that if there was no Agriculture and Forestry, he would not be in his life.
After evaluating and discussing all these, we came to the conclusion that agriculture and forestry is one of the most important development tools for countries. In fact, Agriculture and Forestry has strategic importance in terms of the independence of countries. If the air, water, soil, wind and seeds of the country you are in are your own, it is obvious that everything produced with these resources will provide high added value and will develop your country and your people.
As you know, “Full independence; It means complete freedom in every field such as politics, finance, economics, justice, military service, culture, food.” Full independence is when the state is not under the absolute influence or tutelage of another state or any international organization.” When we look at INDEPENDENCE
from this point of view, it is not possible to talk about the independence of a country without food independence. Therefore, food production is of strategic importance. Our work, which we will try to explain below, has been in question for the world’s countries and peoples to maintain and develop Economic Independence and Food Independence. As a matter of fact, the crises in the post-COVID world clearly revealed how important food production is and showed that we are on the right track.
We have developed a product that will protect CLEAN WATER RESOURCES, bring unused, stony and desolate lands to the economy, enable the farmer to grow FRUIT at minimum cost, increase success in forestry and protect the country’s resources.
The critical threshold that had to be crossed in order to do all this was to solve the WATER PROBLEM. It is obvious that trees need water to live, develop and bear fruit. To solve the water problem, we went to many fairs around the world and looked for a solution. But we could not find a solution in these fairs. Finally, we were inspired by a product of European origin that we came across by chance and with the improvements we made, we developed the product we call EKOBOX. Detailed information about our product is below.
Business Name and what it does
We established a company called EKOFEN to promote and spread the product to the world. What does EKOFEN do? EKOFEN produces the product it has developed and called EKOBOX and markets it to the world. So what is EKOBOX in short?
With Ekobox, we enable you to grow fruit and create forests with 16 liters of water that you fill only once while planting saplings. Because Ekobox provides water for itself by converting the relative humidity in the air from the temperature difference day and night to water. Ekobox produces an average of 18 to 250 cc of water per day, depending on the climate and geography it is in. It also reinforces itself by water harvesting from all kinds of precipitation. The Ekobox usually does not need water again once it has filled up and started the cycle. (It can be filled 2 or 3 times a year in extremely marginal conditions.) Thus, we both protect clean water resources and save you from additional investment. Moreover, we make it possible to farm on lands that no one likes. Moreover, Ekobox can also be used on trees that have grown up to 10 to 30 years old, depending on the type of tree.
Ekobox does not require high investment and operating costs such as any water source, electricity, drilling or pressurized irrigation systems. It allows you to grow trees that can be carried to future generations in degraded, stony lands, in all kinds of terrain conditions of your country. Makes it possible to grow Fruits and create Forests. Heals your country’s stony, degraded and eroded soils and returns them to arboriculture and forestry. Protects clean water resources. It helps prevent rural migration. It helps to end global hunger and reduce the effects of climate change. It contributes significantly to the development of your country and its people. We present our Ekobox solution, which means Ecological and Economic Box, to the world. Together with our game changer EKOBOX, we can change the world’s agriculture and forestry and develop countries and peoples.
What is Ekobox and how does it work? https://youtu.be/8Q-wEXRGqXk The challenges the business/market is facing
The biggest challenge we faced was overcoming people’s prejudices. People were right in their prejudices. How can a tree be grown with only 16 liters of water? Moreover, in deserted, stony and unproductive lands… To grow fruit trees that require an average of 1500 liters of water per year without any water source… People naturally regarded our claim as nonsense. And they laughed their asses off at us.
People’s prejudices must be met with understanding. After all, we had a contradictory claim to what you’ve been taught your whole life. So we had to convince everyone.
First, we contacted the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of our own country. The relevant institutions of the Ministry conducted trials in the most marginal and worst lands of our country. We also contacted various Institutes and Universities to have them experiment. We carried out joint studies with the Faculties of Agriculture and Forestry. Experiments were made with many species such as Pistachio, Carob, Olive, Walnut, Almond, Fig, Grape, Pear, Chestnut. The big farmers who grow fruit have tried our system. They applied it to their overgrown trees. They observed by planting new saplings of various types. They have seen for themselves whether it really works or not.
Then we started experimenting in other countries. We conducted trials in Kuwait, Qatar, Cyprus, Iraq, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and Palestine. We conducted trials in the most adverse climatic and soil conditions without any water source. By the way we bought ourselves 300 acres of bad land. We planted 5000 Walnut and 5000 Almond saplings on this land with our own system (Ekobox). All these trials took about 3.5 years.
As a result, all these researches and trials have been very successful. Prejudices were destroyed, institutions, people and states trusted this system. Because they saw it with their eyes. They became witnesses. An average of 88% success was achieved in the trials conducted with approximately 60 different types of saplings and trees in 8 countries. After passing this stage, we decided to open up to the world.Our system (Ekobox) has been spreading slowly all over the world for 4 years.
The opportunities the business/market is facing
There are many opportunities offered by the system we have developed.
1- Opportunity to combat climate change,
2- Opportunity to combat desertification and drought,
3- Opportunity to cultivate fruit in all kinds of land,
4- Opportunity to protect clean water resources,
5- Opportunity to bring bad lands to the economy by transforming them into productive lands,
6- Opportunity to prevent global hunger,
7- Opportunity to prevent migration due to land inefficiency,
8- Opportunity to earn money by growing fruit and forestry,
9- Due to the shift of job opportunities to cities, people migrate from villages to cities and even abroad. They have to either leave the lands they left behind as empty or sell them. With Ekobox, we provide you with the opportunity to farm in these idle and abandoned lands you left behind.
10- An opportunity to do something truly good for yourself, your children, your grandchildren, your country and the world.
I hope we can change the nature of your region together and contribute to your country and its people. For your questions or detailed information requests, you can contact us via e-mail. If you want to contact by phone, we will provide an interpreter if you inform us by e-mail beforehand.
Remember, “A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they shall never sit.”
We thank you again for your attention and wish health and well-being. Regards
EKOFEN CO. CEO
