Just south of The Hague, in the Westland region of the Netherlands, miles upon miles of greenhouses are spread across the landscape. They have been built by Dutch farmers as part of a 20-year movement to pursue sustainable agriculture by growing indoors. In times of climate change the Dutch agricultural revolution seeks to move beyond greenhouses, which still rely on outside forces like sunlight. But it isn’t cheap. “What really matters is if the income is larger than the cost”, says Leo Marcelis, university professor at Wageningen University. Fueled by indoor farming, the country has become the second biggest food exporter in the world.

We're very proud to be part of this project. This takes food growing to another dimension!
I see that their pH is off a bit from the curling leaves and nutrient burn from brown spots. That Garden definitely saves space though.
Become a vegetarian. There, global food crisis solved. That only took one minute.
THIS IS A PERFECT WAY OF GETTING AROUND THE BAD THINGS ABOUT PESTICIDES
THIS IS A PERFECT IDEA TO GET RID OF PESTICIDES US AS A WORLD NEED TO GET THAT DOWN TO ZERO PESTICIDES ARE SO BAD FOR THE WORLD AND THE CROPS ARE SAVED FROM DISASTER AND YOU CAN YIELD MORE CROPS
The true sustainable answer is to provide education pension n birth control.
It would have been good to have heard something about harvesting the crops — a very significant cost factor. I presume the controlled compact environment is favourable to mechanisation.
"Climate change" bs ruined the film.
I thought the thumbnail was a cool ass club somewhere lol.
This is just usual business. The title of this vidéo is stupid, no need to argue…
350x the yield of a conventional sized farm!? All year! All organic.
there are less than a billion people in the western world– adding billions more are and will be be consuming you— do the math– the 3rd world now is producing the population of the US every 4 years
How stopping torture and murder or white farmers could feed africa
funny, I already saw this documentary last week as youtube now has another documentary channel upcoming which literally has the same clips as this documentary. And also funny is it is recommended as the next played video after this one. hah. Vpro is uploading way more stuff and over taking Journeyman as the documentary masters on youtube. Better start making more journeyman, youre falling behind other channels here.
Nothing beats the real sun.. and it's free.
No way this will feed the world. Most of the growth in the world population will happen in poor nations which simply cannot afford this type of farming. Even if it's grown only in rich nations the transportation costs will be prohibitive.
We don't need to feed the world. We need people who can't feed themselves to stop having ~10 kids. The population of the average African country has risen 300-450% since 1960, while the population of the country I live in has risen ~23% in the same timespan. That's the real problem!
We need the mushroom producer to switch over to psilocybin cubenses so we can dose the world and reset humans.
wow this is the future , food will be soooo much cheaper .
