By Robert B. JonesPublished November 14, 2017 06:17:32It may be the ultimate in sustainability, but one of the more ambitious projects in California’s agriculture is a project called the Forklift Project, which is aiming to build a biofuels-powered forklift.
The project was founded by entrepreneur and former University of California, Davis, alumnus Alberto Fodde and his wife, Laura, who say the forklift could be an ideal solution for farming as a whole.
“This is a huge problem,” Foddes told NBC News.
“A lot of our food is grown in the back country where we have no roads, no access to water.
Our food is really, really, very fragile.”
According to Foddefe, the forklifts would need to be able to lift and transport the massive amount of grain and fodder that the UC Davis agricultural students harvest in order to meet the school’s requirements for agricultural use.
“We need to have a transportation system that is able to carry the load, which means that our trucks can pick up the grain and the fodder and move it to our distribution centers,” he said.
“It would take our trucks about three days to pick it up.”
“We want to be self-sufficient, we want to have the ability to do our own farming, we’re really looking at this from the farming perspective,” he added.
“When you’re talking about a large amount of food, we need to do it all ourselves, and we need the ability, as a farmer, to do this.
So that’s the idea behind this forklift,” he explained.”
It’s a very simple, very efficient, and very efficient way to get a lot of this food, all from a farm that has access to the water, the power, and can transport it,” he continued.
Fodde’s plan has garnered a lot more attention than the other ideas he has discussed in the past few years.
The Forklift project has garnered support from the University of Southern California, which has awarded Foddfe $25,000 in funding to create a pilot project.
The forklifted foodstuffs would be transported from one location to another using a forklift truck.
Fodedes hopes to see the system in operation by 2019, and he hopes to raise $500,000 for the project by the end of that year.
The UC Davis Agricultural Department, meanwhile, is looking to expand its crop management services.
The farm is looking for volunteers to help them with the logistics of the fork lifts, Fodefes said.
They have already raised a seed fund of $2,000.
“I think it will be a really exciting project for agriculture,” he told NBC, adding that it would be a great way to increase our productivity.
