An open source ecosystem of food technologies to create healthier, more engaging and more inventive food systems.
Grow local, from anywhere.

Welcome to the MIT Open Agriculture Initiative

The Open Agriculture Initiative (OpenAg) is on a mission to create more farmers for the future of food production. We are developing the open source hardware and software platforms for sensor-controlled hydroponic and aeroponic agriculture systems.

OpenAg Food Computers, as we call them, will serve as tools for users to experiment, innovate, hack, and grow. Every time users grow and harvest, they will contribute to a library of climate recipes that can be borrowed and scaled so that users around the world can gain access to the best and freshest foods.

OpenAg is developing an open-source ecosystem that enables and promotes transparency, networked experimentation, education, and local production. Together, we hope to create sustainable, shared systems that will break down the barrier of entry and spark interest, conversation, and maybe even a revolution about the way we view food.
