    What if it's 3 minutes? Those 3 minutes are super dense with information presented in a very clear and immediate way. This is probably the best time lenght for this sort of video

     (Mar 1, 2018) that one it goes into more details into LED vertical growing, and into the vertical greenhouses of netherlands, also the future of this kind of growing. 47 mins long... very good.

    it actually has been implemented all around the world i think, what i meant was japan probably has some twist with it, so some parts of it have to be a secret. Just like everyone knows how to make a fried chicken but kfc or mcd have their own secret recipes.

    Because the sky has no limit! This is rediculously smart! I hope this type of farming will be implemented everywhere and in other countries as well :)

    I guess it would be a tradeoff between overheads of going verticle in a city center; I would have guessed it was cheaper to ship in from rural areas, land in cities is not cheap.
