A Vertical Farm Grows In Newark | The Daily 360 | The New York Times


Here we are at AeroFarms. This is our ninth farm and
the largest vertical farm in the world. We define vertical farming as layer upon layer of plant growth. What we could grow in one acre, it takes a 130
acres to grow in the field. We use 95 percent less water to grow a plant,
zero pesticides, herbicides, fungicides. We are building AeroFarms with the purpose
of having a strong impact on the community we live in as well as the environment. Also, we’re helping alleviate a food desert
right here in the city of Newark.

  1. no pesticides, low water usage.. Heaven !! Maybe we can let earth start healing itself now, by growing whatever it wants in the wild. How lovely!!

  2. a million of dollar for $6 salad… yeah,just joke its innovation for the billion $ of bright future

  3. More humans need more food meaning farming needs to go vertical, just as humans have learnt to live vertical. There will not be more land for nature. We will learn to make factories on that land.

  4. Vertical farming is straight out of a Japanese Sci Fi Anime, the Charter Schools however are straight out of a dystopian post ethics US Federal disconnect from basic mass health, housing and pro-society policy.

  5. Now, this, paired with lab cultured meat, modular, 3D printed, smart brick buildings/houses, advanced longevity/health gene therapy/maintenance, asteroid/natural satellite mining, alternative green energy production, AI, all pave the way for a prosperous future for humanity, just have to hope that plebians don't mess it all up.
