Nailesh Kanaksi Khimji (NKK) Investments, a company in the agritech, green hydrogen, and sustainability sectors, has announced a partnership with UrbanKisaan, a U.S.-based agritech startup, with its research centre in India.

The alliance is expected to transform hydroponic farming practices in Oman, UAE and Saudi Arabia.

As part of this joint venture, NKK Investments aims to introduce UrbanKisaan’s hydroponic and vertical farming technology to Oman. The focal point of this venture is to popularize UrbanKisaan’s farming techniques, rendering them more affordable and accessible to Omani farmers. By harnessing the power of hydroponics and vertical farming, the joint venture seeks to empower local agriculturalists to cultivate higher yields with significantly fewer resources.

“By combining NKK Investments’ strategic insights with UrbanKisaan’s pioneering technology, we are poised to reshape the future of farming in Oman and help our nation achieve food security targets in line with His Majesty Sultan Haitham’s Oman Vision 2040,” said Chirayu Khimji, director of NKK Investments and KR Group. “We are confident that the proliferation of our technology within the Sultanate will allow the people of Oman to enjoy pesticide and GMO-free fruits and vegetables at the lowest pricing to date.”
