    I have bought truss tomatoes for many years because they have more flavour and are not sprayed with poisons as field tomatoes are. If solar power and water reuse are employed, it will be a sustainable business.

    180 calories per kg for tomatoes… If you want to feed the world with greenhouses then I think tomatoes are a bit of a waste of space.

    In this country, as prone as it is to drought, it makes a lot more sense to use these methods, than traditional ones.
