Is soil-less agriculture the answer?

Is soil-less agriculture the answer? | Urban Aquaponics Farm | Scoop.it

With widespread drought affecting international harvests this year, could issues over land availability and productivity be a thing of the past with new developments in soil-less agriculture?

 

But, how realistic is it to believe that soil-less agriculture can be developed at a commercial scale. Will soil-less agricultural crops find their way to your dinner table any time soon?

 

New innovation and key processes to improve the crop yields will be discussed over 3 days. Join me at the Sustainable Agriculture Conference, 12-14 March 2013 in Rotterdam.

Even though this will not pass as an alternative for lunch, lettuce vending machines are nevertheless a nice invention for those who want to get fresh greens. Hydroponic farming and vending gives more options and soon we can see more fruits and vegetables sold this way.
