Fargreen works with a network of Vietnamese farmers to provide an alternative to burning rice crop waste. Fargreen’s model instead collects rice straw to grow and sell premium edible mushrooms and other crops and any leftover waste is then recycled back into the soil, creating a no-waste production loop.
