This Farm Of The Future Uses No Soil And 95% Less Water

AeroFarms in Newark, New Jersey grows a variety of leafy salad greens using a process called 'aeroponics,' which relies on air and mist. AeroFarms claims it uses 95% less water than a traditional farm thanks to its specially designed root misting system.

And it is now building out a new 70,000 square foot facility in a former steel mill. Once completed, it's expected to grow 2 million pounds of greens per year, making it the largest indoor vertical farm in the world.
