A 2300 square meter former semiconductor plant has become the world’s largest indoor vegetable farm, thanks to Shigeru Shimamura and special LED lights from General Electric. The farm produces 10,000 heads of lettuce per day all while using less than 1% of the water needed for a normal farm, and none of the weather or pest related risks that come with growing outdoors. Produce waste is also slashed from 50 to just 10% as well. Shimamura’s indoor farming company, Mirai, has partnered with GE and is looking to set up similar operations in locations around the world, starting with Hong Kong and Russia. —————————————-­——————— Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

These tilapia will take about 6 months to reach full size of about 1.5lbs. Our goal is to run enough tests with this small scale model to eventually commercialize it to a degree.

    And in North Carolina (and all over the country) we're playing games with legalizing industrial hemp. Japan's going to kick our asses in agriculture like they did for a while in automotives and electronics if we do not wake up.

    "Anyone know which specific things they are doing that other major indoor vegetable cultivation operations definitely aren't? Are they really quite as far ahead of others as they seem to be saying they are?"

    Peter, what they're doing that we are not doing is WORKING COOPERATIVELY with each other… and PRIORITIZING society's needs instead of corporate profiteering.  It's really very simple: The Japanese do NOT subscribe to our insanely greedy CAPITALISM as evidenced by the fact that there is a RESTRICTION on the ratio between a CEO's yearly income compared with that of the common worker!  "We" would never consider such a thing… although it DOES exist in many other countries to a lesser extent than in Japan.  😉

    Something like this seems like a no-brainer to me. Especially in urban environments. Hopefully it takes off worldwide.

    This was interesting though unfortunately a silly exercise. Too many mechanical items to go wrong especially the heaters which is what brought his experiment to a screeching halt. Sorry to hear that but I would like to see you keep pushing the envelope. Don't fall in love with technology and use natural resources as much as possible.

    "Only a 1k gallons." Heh. So that's the same volume in grow space, right?

    have you considered pasave solar heating as a viable heating source to supplement the way you heat  . . . . . .and or as far as air, have you looked at a fountain or rotating top water circulatory system

  • Douglas Viens 1 year ago

    why do you use air stones for oxygenation rather than more surface disruption for a waterfall or something???

    This i a very expensive way in farming an indoor tilapia. You should consider that tilapias are very hardy fish and can survive in very low DO levels. You don't have to put a very strong aeration system and heaters are not very necessary (unless during winter). As for your bio-filtration, the system looks so sophisticated. Mine, I use plastic scrubbers and some pebbles. Everything is also fine. Your system is good in achieving the best conditions, however not the most practical way in raising a hardy tilapia fish.

    cover the tank to conserve heat and try aquaponics to filter the water…

  • michael baney 1 year ago

    your pump should be fine

  • michael baney 1 year ago

    buy the grey aquaponic – hydroponic air stones. buy at hydroponic store or ebay under aquaponics. they last way longer better aeration easier to clean.

    I would us a flapper to break the water to air rate air bubbles dos not air rate the water the barking of the water surface as the bubble brake the water is how air enters the water so using a paddle wheel on top of the water is the best air ratter for power rate you can use and for heating I would us passive solar hot water heater system with a thermal switch on a pump and Large river rock to store the heat for night time maybe a few dehumidifier help with mold hope this help
