Populations are growing and cities are booming – but could we soon see skyscrapers turned into centers for crop production? From Chicago warehouses to the south pole growth chamber in Antarctica, the concept of growing food indoors is catching on. Plant scientist Dr Erik Murchie, from the University of Nottingham, reveals how agriculture could be turned on its head. What is vertical farming?
