When food becomes scarce – high-tech farms of the future | DW Documentary technology documentary 2021

by adminhuahinsunvilla3sd



Agriculture will have to change drastically in the future if it is to meet global demand. Food production will become increasingly difficult in the face of growing challenges like rapid population growth, climate change and soil exhaustion.

In Berlin, too, you can find lettuces growing in beds without soil and under artificial lighting next to restaurant kitchens or in some supermarkets. But in Japan and the US the practice of growing vegetables in huge factory buildings has been around longer. These are a world away from your normal greenhouses. The plants are grown in sterile conditions without the use of any pesticides. The fruit and vegetables produced can be eaten without being washed. And the yield is 100 times greater than in a same-sized area outdoors. The Japanese maker of such high-tech farms is successfully exporting them around the world – to customers in the Arab Emirates and in Asia’s megacities, for example.

We will all have to wake up to the fact that food production methods will have to change if our food supplies are to be secure in the future. Increasingly, our cities will have to come up with ways of growing more for themselves and becoming less dependent on rural areas and global food supply chains. At the same time it is imperative to reform conventional farming to make it more weather resistant and less resource intensive.

I think, that technology makes sense a great deal! For we are forced to find new safe ways of producing anything in our beautiful planet, if we want to survive and enhance our specie

When food becomes scarce ? When humanity is throwing away a 3rd of the food production, and some of it doesnt even reach the shelves…

Neighbor plants chemistry also enhances some other plants to grow well too.
It is another area that our technologists need to explare.

So called high tech farming those are soil less and based on chemical fertilizers and pesticide is very dangerous thing.
This is straight practice to make human extinct.
There is no shortage of agriculture land in the world, there is no shortage of crops.
We need to focus not on how much we feed the world instead we urgently need to address how much natural nutrient rich food is feed to world population.
Companies that produces these harmful chemical and pesticide will never let anyone know that there can be cheap and natural food source available, those can be permaculture, natural farming etc and it's good for human.
Time to wake up guys otherwise it will be too late

Im scare of planting food in house, the food we used to eat have to survive from insect and dissease, by eating that, our immune system also be stronger. have a look Japanese Teeth, their Teeth not grow as good as other country, because they eat small pieces of food with less chewing. If we keep eating food grow in house, I’m afraid that we are missing something else.

IF WE KEEP UP WITH OUR HOARDING WAYS AS FAR AS THE "HAVE" COUNTRIES GO, THIS WILL BE THE NEW WAY TO GROW CROPS. NO SOIL VERY LITTLE WATER IF ANY AND NO NEED FOR THOUSANDS OF ACRES BUT TOWERING FIELDS OF CROPS 24/7. ACTUALLY RIGHT NOW IS THE TIME TO START SETTING THESE UP FOR AT LEAST ONE BILLION ARE CURRENTLY FOOD INSECURE NOT TO MENTION WATER AS WELL. A GREAT VIDEO. THAT CONVENTIONAL FARMER WAS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT IS SAYING THESE NEW WAYS OF ROOFTOP FARMING IS NOTHING LIKE REAL FARMING. SADLY WE HAVE NO CHOICE AS MORE LAND WILL BE PAVED OVER FOR MILLIONS MORE HOUSES AND CITIES!!

I wonder how much of it is really true. I recently saw a different documentary about the milk industry that showed that in some African countries, milk powder imports from the Netherlands push local fresh milk farmers out of the market because it's so much cheaper. In the Netherlands we export a ridiculous amount of food, when I think a lot of the time food growing is better left to smaller, local farmers.

"Artificial farming" is not the enemy of small-time farmers. It's the big "agricultural" corporations that exploit the land to death. Not to mention, these companies will use all the chemicals necessary for a bountiful harvest to accumulate more wealth. Indoor farming doesn't need that as these are in facilities that are closed, smart, and tightly monitored. Y'all need to get your points right.

@6:55 how about we change the way we plan and distribute our production and stop wasting a huge amount of what is produced?

Need to rotate the cultures and not use pesticides.
All you need to produce the food is good soil, sun and good water.
This is just green material solution.
Do you have same minerals in this food ?
Massive production with pesticide destroy the soil. Stop chemicals and mono culture production.

You first say the plants are fed using a nutrient solution (correct), then go on to say @11:25 that no fertilizers are used in the process. Yes, they are. Not that this is a problem, just be accurate in what you say.

Irrigation has brought much food to market, but irrgating by spraying water all overe is a big problem, the move to drip irrigation needs to be legislated into law. And in Sub-Saharan Africa, we need to make the quantum leap to technology such as vertical green houses instead of trying to follow methods that Europe etc followed suuch as tractors and mass irrigation, but those are destructive and have to be reduced.

The only successful story of indoor farming is about growing salad. Indoor farming are good for only few types of veggies. Growing rice is another thing to look after.

NOT true. Less people are farming because they are drawn to cities where they can live make money. Farming is an amazing job to have, but it is filled with stress year by year.

They say that the number of hungry people continues to rise, but our global population goes up too.

Maybe I'm a pessimist, but we seriously need to stop having children in developing countries.

Less mouths means more water for all
