Earth’s population continues to grow at a staggering rate, with around 80 million new people on Earth each year. Those people need food, which puts an ever increasing strain on our farmland and water supply. Thankfully, we have technology. One of the companies showing how tech can revolutionize farming is AeroFarms. The completely controlled, vertical growing environment uses 95% less water and allows for much more intensive farming meaning greater yields. Is this the future of farming? Probably. According to Geek.com, vertical farming can be done intensively and pretty much anywhere in the world with a reliable power supply. That makes it a highly desirable method of food production. And AeroFarms isn’t the only company involved in this futuristic farming. Toshiba has turned an old floppy disc factory into a farm growing lettuce that doesn’t need washing. Meanwhile, Japanese company Spread has a farm run by robots set to produce 30,000 heads of lettuce a day. Farming is now done in 30 foot tall stacks without sunlight, pesticides, or soil http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com Video Rating: / 5 Related PostsThis Farm of the Future Uses No Soil and 95% Less WaterThis Farm of the Future Uses No Soil and 95% Less WaterSoil Matters On the FarmWorld’s first robot FARM – replace humans with machines in its lettuce factoriesAeroponics- practical description of how to farm without use of soilAquaponics – Providing expertise and equipment to address your needs!
