Wakati's solar-powered, standalone solution
Fruits and vegetables growing on the field are constantly exposed to high temperatures. When fruits and vegetables are cut off from the plant, they start to dehydrate, the internal cell structure starts to decay and the cells, containing acids and enzymes, spill their contents, digesting the crops inside out and causing them to rot.
The Wakati keeps the cell structure of recently harvest fruits and vegetables intact by preventing dehydration through the creation of a saturated humidity inside the tent.
With the Wakati, ethylene production is eliminated which is the ripening hormone of fruits and vegetables. At high temperatures, harvested crops produce high levels of ethylene, especially when they are bruised, which accelerates the rotting process of the produce.
