VERTICAL FARMING

I came across a video talking about a futuristic way to grow crops with no soil and 95% less water. Instead of soil, these super-crops rely on reusable sheets of fabric made from recycled plastic. Like insect farming, I can see this form of futuristic agriculture being used on a massive scale. I will be contemplating this as I continue to research and brainstorm ideas for my future superhuman series.

INSECT FARMING

I mentioned this in some of my past posts, but I am interested in revisiting it. Did you know that over two billion people around the world include insects in their diet? It may seem gross to eat insects, but there is sound logic in the concept. Insects are a great source of protein and farming them requires far less water and resources than farming chickens, pigs, and cows. Most importantly, farming insects also generates a lot less green house gases than farming traditional livestock, which is far better for the environment. I came across a number of videos showing how farming insects would be possible with 21st century technology. Watching these videos got me thinking of this farming technology being used on a far larger scale. I will consider this when the time comes to write my superhuman series.
