    So, why is it that I saw a similar video about a vertical farm in the US about 6-7 years ago that also saved on energy costs by identifying the fact that crops only require specific freq's of the spectrum, then focusing the usage of LED lighting to those colors (I believe it was blue and red, but the blended colour came out pink-ish)… now i see this video implying that vertical farming is a brand new shiny Japanese thing?! Totally radicchiolous.
    2004: Founding of AeroFarms
    2015: AeroFarms opens world's largest vertical farming venture using their discoveries in energy saving light-shifted LEDs… in NEW JERSEY, US.
    Then again, Mirai has a near identical timeline according to different online sources – and i have neither the thyme, nor the energy to suss this out for a Ytb comment.
    And lettuce not forget the work they've been doing at Vietnam National University of Agriculture since 2006 – truly, the hydro/aqua/aeroponics sectors have been making grape advancements around the world for over a decade.
    Don't get me wrong. I think this method of agriculture should be adopted by every region of the world, and by every prefecture and state within 日本国 and the US, respectively. Just sayin': carrot where carrot's due…
