Default Robot Farms... of the Future!

Not science fiction. But Japan, who has been doing this kind of thing so well:

This massive Japanese vegetable factory saves water and energy–along with human labor.

“There are several reasons vegetable factories will be needed in the future in order to create a sustainable society,” says Kiyoka Morita from Spread. Like other indoor farms, Spread’s new factory uses far less water than traditional agriculture; the factory’s new technology also allows them to recycle 98% of that water. Because the factory is sealed, there’s no need for pesticides or herbicides. The ultra-efficient lighting system can run on renewable energy. Japan imports about 60% of its food each year, but the factory can supply it locally.

This Robot-Run Indoor Farm Can Grow 10 Million Heads Of Lettuce A Year

One of the reasons we are overrun with factory farms in the US is the struggle to keep food costs artificially low (among other reasons like corporations cutting themselves subsidies in ways that push out smaller operations.)

I love the fact they don't use pesticides or herbicides. Not everything can be done this way, I'm sure, but letting cows & such graze on the land instead of turning it into a soybean factory is what the future should be.
