With rising populations, the manner in which we farm must imbibe technology to feed this aggressive demand. Hear from an entrepreneur who is pinning his hopes on an urban farming revolution, as presented at TEDxNITKSurathal. Sriram Gopal is the founder of Future Farms, a company focusing on the nascent field of hydroponics and aquaponics and in developing farming technologies suited for tropical climates. In the current scenario of depleting water resources world over, hydroponics has an advantage over traditional farming since it consumes about 90 per cent less water, requires no pesticides, and provides better yield. Sriram is pinning his hopes on an urban farming revolution, where the new-age farmers would be people who would be comfortable handling the computers and sensors that are part of the hydroponic set-up, and rooftops in the cities would be the harvest field. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

    It's great thinking according to science, technology and food. But as u said food is a nutrition giving machine.
    Machine in the sense plants, all types of plants get minerals,vitamins from soil. So, without soil how do we get nutritioned food. There will be no difference right, now also we r eating unnutritional food and even after using this technology. Why we should then.
    Sir plzzzz replay me………..

    Sir, i applaud you and your fellow urban farmers. i wish that this concept spreads through out the world. Just one thought,……….does anyone check the roof tops for load bearing weight distribution? what do we do when we live in climate with multiple seasons? do you have to add any thing to the water do you have to keep the water moving? what do you do for pest control?

    Great talk. I saw another video on Beme News covering urban farming and it really seems like the way to go. In that video, a company in New York is converting shipping containers into urban farms that can grow all types of produce year round. This guy has a great idea, but he could actually be thinking bigger picture. Urban farms wouldn't need to be limited only to rooftops.
