"As the world’s population continues to grow and move into urban areas, feeding people in cities is recognised as a big challenge. Land is a precious commodity that is often threatened by over-farming, fertilisers pollute waterways, and chemicals to control pests and diseases can adversely affect humans – whether they are those cultivating the land or those eating their products.
But a revolutionary new form of vertical farming developed by a Singaporean construction engineer is attracting interest from around the world and plaudits from those who eat the products. It produces ten times more per hectare than conventional farming techniques, uses very little energy or water, is relatively maintenance-free and produces delicious green vegetables in 28 days or less."
A report we did together with Pictet on the future of farming.
