Growing produce faster with no pesticides, minimum water, less impact to the environment and whenever we want irrespective of climate.
More food, better food. Nothing better!!
This is not something out of fiction. Netherlands based company PlantLab has achieved this very effectively, - growing plants indoors, vertically stacking to use space well and using LED lights for increased yield.
Good info from singularityhub.com
"When grown outdoors plant photosynthesis is only about 9% efficient. With the correct balance of colored LED light, PlantLab has increased that efficiency to 12 or 15%, aiming for 18%. Double the efficiency means increased yield (or more likely equal yield with less energy). By keeping the plants in a contained system, PlantLab can also recycle evaporated water, which helps them grow crops using just one tenth the water as with traditional greenhouses. Because PlantLab’s harvest is indoors, they don’t have pests (and could quickly isolate rooms that somehow got contaminated) and they don’t need pesticides. Finally, PlantLab’s production facilities can be built almost anywhere: from the Sahara to the Arctic it’s all going to look the same indoors. So everyone’s food can be grown as local as possible. That means fresher food with less costs of transportation."
