Summary of High-tech farming and Alternative Food Networks

In the theme of high-tech farming as part of the Alternative Food Network system, I have learnt that:

  1. AFN is not necessarily less pollutive than commercial farming
  2. High-tech farming in indoor and urban conditions are expensive, although the energy consumed is at an efficient rate
  3. If Singapore wants to enhance its food security through more vigorous urban food production, Skygreen’s vertical green model is more apt than the LED lighted agriculture.
  4. LED lights should be powered by electricity produced by renewable and green energy so that it does not emit carbon like the animal farms and cause greenhouse effects.
