Title: The “GrowFast” Project
For eons man has been harvesting food crops. At each harvest a certain level of minerals and nutrients are removed. After a time these vital components for good health are depleted. As an example, selenium is an important cancer preventive agent. In China, little selenium remains in soil. After a period, the fertility of soil diminishes, yields decrease, and fields are no longer economically viable. Agriculture consumes 40% of fresh water needs It’s time for game-changing, environmentally sound practices to increase the nutritional value of foods, diminish water and chemical usage, promote ‘urban” farms and year-round agriculture in specialized buildings energized by the sun and wind. It’s time to grow phytopharmeticals to lower the cost of medicines.
