The Future of Farming May Not Involve Dirt or Sun

Farming uses 70 percent of all freshwater consumed and only allows the recycling of about half of that after use. With water scarcity on the rise, a company called AeroFarms has developed a new method of farming that uses no soil, no sunlight, and a fraction of the water needed in traditional farming. To accomplish this, crops are grown in a new cloth and sprayed with a nutrient-rich mist.
