Aponic Co Ltd have developed a commercial vertical soil-less growing system that uses 90% less water than traditional agriculture, runs on rain water and solar power, does not emit harmful run-off into the environment and massively reduces the need for fossil fuels in food production. We'll be able to see their systems for producing a wide range of vegetables and to discuss their applicability to tropical agriculture and small-scale peri-urban agriculture.
