Pictured above is the world’s largest indoor farm illuminated by LEDs, which opened this month in Japan. Inside, 18 cultivation racks reach 15 levels high, and are outfitted with 17,500 GE LED light fixtures developed specifically for this facility. The indoor farm can grow lettuce two-and-a-half times faster than an outdoor farm, and is already producing 10,000 heads of it per day.

Can you imagine showing this to a farmer who was alive and planting just 50 years ago? They’d think we were space aliens.
At some point, we’re going to have to do this en masse. I love the idea of this because it would help eliminate the food deserts that cities have become. It just makes sense on land footprint usage.
