Ultra high-tech greenhouse under construction. Thanks to quality seeds, LED lighting, sensors and more, the greenhouse can produce ten times the amount per hectare as traditional farming methods, with about 90 per cent less water. In the next four decades, our planet will have to produce more food than farmers have harvested in the last 8,000 years. This is because by 2050 the Earth will be home to up to 10 billion people, compared to 7.8 billion today. Unless massive increases in agricultural yields are achieved, accompanied by massive decreases in the use of water and fossil fuels, a billion or more people could starve. Greenhouses could offer a solution to humanity's future needs.
