How cost effective is this? Is it cheaper than hauling lettuce 1800 miles? If not, it's not a viable solution.

Yip. This is the future. We will be using every unusable container/land to grow food. We will use shipping container, abandoned warehouses and rooftops to farm.

I lol when people say indoor farming is not practical. People are already doing it. Providing a good product to happy customers. Making good profit. It's practical. It works. Anybody who still has any reservations should see the scale at which the Dutch are doing it. Be amazed.

Technology still too expensive? BS, you can grow hydroponically in just about anything, I grow all year round in less than $200 worth of storage totes. Use your imagination man, its easier than you think to grow enough produce to support your family with fresh produce.

5 acres is 20k sq m. a shipping container (40ft) has only 29.6 sq m floor space... so, say that the 5 acre field only produces for 6 months and container for 12 months of the year, need 10k sq m in the container. That means you'd need 337.8 levels of growing space! As there plants seem have be about 0.3 m head room and the container is only 2.89 m tall at best, that is only 9 complete levels Giving the container about 266 sq m of growing space. That is 6.65% of 1 acre!

Also those containers are filthy inside with water on the floor almost everyday which is a hazard on its own. They also used extension cords with cuts everyday on there wet floors. I stated that to the manager and countless other employees they just told me it's normal here at local roots!!!if you plan on working there expect to work everyday with unprotected wires on wet floors and algea on there flood tables because they were too stupid to block the light from hitting the tables this video won't show you that obviously and the company had so many problems to fix with there lights always failing,(algea also in alot of the led lights because water got into there lights!!!)flickering and sometimes they would lose alot of lettuce because they had problems with there computer program and the air conditioner would not turn on. Also they had an ammonia powder in the air every morning that would give employees headaches and it would cause nasal irritation.

I have seen the inside of this warehouse and if you go in there you have to watch your step because there is water on the floor everyday that spills from the resovoirs.

Shorter supply chains, no pesticides, no abuse of immigrant labor, and no one urinating in the field while picking the food. These are all good reasons for a revolution in vertical farming to begin. Restaurants, grocery stores, and small businesses all can benefit. The future looks great for urban farming.

None of this food is nutritious. You need sunlight and soil (they don't even know what plants use from the soil so how can they reproduce it).
Thatyou GoOn (3 месяца назад)
A combination of soluble salts, microbes with which the plant engages in mutualistic relations, carbon dioxide, oxygen, water and the correct spectrum of electromagnetic radiation is basically all that a plant needs, all stuff you can recreate. Nature is a good starting point, but nature as the end goal is hugely overrated. Those crops are the result of millennia of genetic engineering via artificial selection based on traits. Compared to their ancestors, those crops are complete and horrific mutations. They have been man-made to function in our society and produce food for us, not to live in the "wild". They are what we made them to be, nothing natural. And that is only a good thing. it is the sole reason we can still sustain ourselves considering our population densities. there is a lot wrong with modern agriculture, but to take such a fundamentally critically important thing as much as possible in our control and not by chance is the only logical thing to do. The fact that it is unnatural makes it possible you and I are alive, so yea, don't bring the "it is unnatural" argument up. it is pure nonsence.

I saw someone do the math once, for the cost to provide the light for indoor farming. It was orders of magnitude beyond what outdoor farming costs. Like so far off from normal farming that anyone who does stuff like this is scamming people because they know they can't do indoor farming for real. This video is a scam.
Thatyou GoOn (3 месяца назад)
if you were to use solar panels for electricity, LEDs and would provide food at times that the season isn't right to produce such foods, you would have yourself a pretty strong position in the market, no doubt.

Click bait much . No way can or could they ever grow 5 acres of greens inside a container. More than likely they jacked up the price so severally high to ritzy restaurants, the profits would be comparible to 5 acres. In the sense of that, then yea. Maybe. But never physically. Ergo, click bait video indeed

Great innovation but why use artificial lighting when you’ve sun all year around in the desert. Also would be great if could touch energy consumption and footprint.
altha 2014 (6 месяцев назад)
Lets do a little math here.. I'm no expert on these containers, So let say it is a 40 feet container with a width of 8 feet.. I do not know the inside d emissions so we will just go with the outside. That would cover in area of 320 sq feet. I saw 4 levels of food being grown so we will multiply 320 sq feet time 4 to get 1,280 there look to be a good walk space in the center of the container so we will give them that as well Even if they grow 30 days crops like roman lettuce, baby carrots that will be 12 crops same as a 15,360 foot growing area. which is around the same as less then 3/10 of an acre not 5 acres... now if we was to do 60 day garden crops that will reduce the amount even more

Five acres per shipping container??? Have any of these people ever actually seen an open acre of farmed land??? One of these would be only a tiny fraction of one acre, not five.
craig sasscer (3 дня назад)
Josh Blick think about how far apart he individual plants in a typical crop row are. In these containers they are only inches apart meaning many more plants per square foot. Plus they have multiple levels vertically.

I'm shocked because it seemed like your first post was an opinion in agreeing with this video and you didn't want to believe the other posts on here before now claiming this was wrong and yet you couldn't go look up information on your own.
Josh Blick (5 месяцев назад)
I'm shocked that you are even asking that. It's common sense. Go look at a container then go physically mark or walk 1 acre, not 5. If you can't walk it then mark it out on google earth. No way in hell are you going to get 1 acre of crops out of one box, things need room to grow. I have a large aquaponics system that takes up an entire room in my house and in no way would I claim crazy numbers like that. It's just a sales speech. There's a ton of legitimate articles if you just look. Here's a video from Dr. Nate Storey https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXXZ1GUmgcI

Whoa this is great! What about ROA, return on investment, and cost of operation? If they can compare this method with traditional farming in an economical sense (with the numbers of course), this might attract new farmers.
newsomeassoc (6 месяцев назад)
These people are obviously standard delusional Californians. This is truly a ridiculous science project to grow steel box lettuce. Cool concept but I think 99.9% of all people needing food would like to eat more than only lettuce and a few green leafy herbs. Potatoes, carrots, corn, cucumbers, tomatoes anyone? Maybe you can stack 20 cows or 1000 chickens in that box? Anyone can grow green leaves. Why not tackle some real food issues instead of wasting time and money on leaves in a box???

letsgetverydrunk (6 месяцев назад)
quick calculation, stacked 6 layers high, with a 60cm corridor a 40ft container would offer about 120-130m² of cultivatable area. 5 acres is about 20200 m². I assume that they mean it has the same productivity as 5 acres... which would be a 127 times increase in yield? I would like more context on these numbers? That said, I really like container cultivation.
Joe Black (1 месяц назад)
Container cultivation aside. It's small fry compared to what's out there. The really big players in hydroponics who use semi-automated operations get amazing figures. The best numbers I've found is something called the Finnish Gutter system than can produce 900 crops (heads) of lettuce per square meter per year. These are big conveyor style operations and the area calculation is essentially averaged over the size of the entire installation. The crops are not stationary. Only 4 workers are needed in the entire production line. I think the type of crop produced in these highly controlled container environments will be of a superior quality though. And therefore be of a higher value. I say if they can do it profitably then by all means.
Chris Topher (6 месяцев назад)
Agreed. Best set of comparison figures I have seen is Broadacre - 1 lettuce per sq ft, 3x per year. Indoor - 4 lettuce per sq ft, 12 x per year. = 16 times the productivity by area. I guess you can stack containers 5 high as well. That could get to 80 times. The numbers for intensive indoor production are impressive, but massively overstating them with no explanation does no one any good.

Rubix Cube (5 месяцев назад)
I don't get how this is sad. Farms use more chemicals than this.
jaime caballero (6 месяцев назад)
The real chemistry cocktail is at a normal plantation full of pesticides, fertilizer, herbicides. Plus hydroponics use 90% less water than conventional. Plants get the same nutrients, just in better way. Also saying plant not getting energy from the sun is not "biological" makes no sense. Electromagnetic waves from the sun are an ABIOTIC resource. EMW from sun or light are exactly the same. This "full organic" people are just show setters.
Mohammad Omar (6 месяцев назад)
Will the plants have a taste like as if you had grown them in soil or will the be just plain water taste ??

as a hydroponic grower myself, I can tell you they taste better than traditionally grown produce. When raising hydronic produce a nutrient solution is used to grow the produce, its not just water.

Including all costs, they can't even compete with shipments of food to places as remote as antarctic stations. The most efficient LEDs possible (expressed in lumens), even those operating in a 24 cycle, are vastly more inefficient than natural insolation, excepting the total darkness at the north pole. Almost all who try it go bankrupt and even then the crop diversity is very limited. It is a market with a very limited boxed in potential. The energy and cost equation just isn't competitive with open air agriculture or agriculture in plastic hot-houses on soil. You only use it where people have no issues with installing an over-priced capability. Then again, it is an excellent technology off world, on Moon or Mars, where a resilient food production capability is more important than cost.

#damarh Stupid comment. They don't cost $50k and just how much money, water, labor and energy do you think it takes to raise 5 acres of produce in the traditional method? Container farming uses a fraction of the water and resources of traditional growing methods and you don't have the need for herbicides and pesticides or GMO low nutritional produce. You are not at the mercy of the weather either and natural disasters either. The success rate of hydroponic and aquaponic grown crops is nearly 100%, fare better than traditionally grown produce, and much healthier.
