Huge vol­umes of food grown in green­houses

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - THIS WEEK YOU’RE SAYING ... & CONSUMER -

RE­GARD­ING your spe­cial re­port on the “great land de­bate,” the Dutch have only a small piece of land, yet they are ex­port­ing mas­sive amounts of food to the rest of the world.

They do this by us­ing green­houses ex­ten­sively.

If we used their tech­nol­ogy, we would prob­a­bly have 10 times the land (green­houses) needed for some plants and the most pros­per- ous farm­ers would prob­a­bly be those us­ing green­houses along the ex­ten­sive South African coast.

It has been demon­strated that corn and wheat can also be grown in green­houses and strains for green­houses could pos­si­bly be de­vel­oped.
