You can learn a lot about all sorts of animals in this fun and educational online game. Find out what types of food they like to eat and much more. Can you help this friendly farmer create an awesome herb garden? Which type should she plant first? Louis plans to grow fruit trees in the area around the tanks, as these will absorb potentially harmful gases escaping from the tanks while helping to create a warm, tropical climate conducive to the well-being of the fish.
Louis stresses that he wants to do more with less, and not simply add tunnels. We can add another 6 plants using NFT hydroponic pipes. Three pumps are used: As the cost of electricity is high, Louis plans to install solar-generated pumps as soon as possible. He is also experimenting with black soldier fly larvae; these will feed on waste plant matter and, in turn, become fish feed. For now, however, he is not overly concerned about the growth rate of the fish, as they are not the main source of income. Pests include aphids, worms and moths, but ladybirds eat the aphids.
So we supply the fresh fruit and vegetable market in Vredenburg, various restaurants, private people and an online produce shop.

The benefits of organic matter. Growing a variety of soil microbes. Efficient in-field mechanisation is a major contributor to higher yield and lower production costs. Unfortunately, mechanisation also means that machinery wheels regularly compact the soil. I wish every kid could have that experience. I want to start someplace you don't expect, I think. Up here in the Orkney Islands, off the northeast tip of Scotland.
Five thousand years ago, when something fresh was in the hearts of the people and in their minds and they were transitioning to a new way of life, the Neolithic way of life, they were stopping the process of being hunter-gatherers and they were becoming farmers. And they were putting up things like the Stones of Stenness that you see out here near the Ness of Brodgar.
This is out on a nice foggy night out there at the Stones of Stenness. And my assistant is back behind that center stone with a flashlight. That's where the light is coming from. We did a lot of lighting on this story, as you will see, using flashlights. It always isn't all this big, heavy duty equipment. So, those folks, those folks up there, five thousand years ago were settling down, they were building houses. Not a bad little house, is it? There you go, you see, there's a couple of beds on each wall. There's a dresser in the middle, and when this thing was blown out of the sand dunes by a storm in , there were still combs and things sitting on the dressers there, as if the people had just left.
There's a hearth in the middle, there's even a little fish tank, so you can keep your fish fresh inside the house. There's even a little cubbyhole that has a stream running under it, makes you think they have indoor plumbing. And then the other thing that they were doing is this.
They were starting to plant crops. They were becoming farmers. And that's the revolution. They were beginning a monumental journey That's the important thing to remember.
Now, I want you to fast-forward with me 5, years to today, when agriculture has taken over the planet, has transformed our world, the biosphere, has spawned cultures, cities, and whole ways of life all over the planet. And here we are, sitting here, with seven billion people on the planet.
And by we could have nine billion, by we might reach ten or so Can we feed those nine or ten billion people when we get there? And will we have a planet left worth living on?
That is the essential question I want to follow on exploring tonight. Thirty-nine percent of the ice-free land on the planet is taken over by agriculture. Worldwide pastures take up So, we did this, we got the plow, we transformed the planet. It's the biggest transformation of any process by humans in the biosphere. But then after World War II we got into really transforming the planet, using petroleum as fuel for the transformation. This is up in the Palouse. But here's what I really want you to remember about this.
When you think about world food supply even today, with that mega-agriculture, peasants, small farmers on farms of two hectares or less still grow more than 50 percent of the world's food. Industrial large-scale agriculture that we see on the scale out in the Great Plains, and whatnot, grows 30 percent of the world's food. Hunter-Gatherers still take in So, that story that we are used to that large industrial agriculture is the only way to feed the planet, at least isn't true right now feeding seven billion people.
But you also see this, that there are places in the world where you've got real problems. Africa, these young women were hauling firewood ten kilometers back to their village. They were walking ten kilometers to get it and ten kilometers back. The promise of genetic engineering and the promise of ways of-- very often perceived to be magic-bullet ways of feeding our planet, and yet, still, this one fundamental reality And there's not a lot you can do about it, except live with it and try and adapt. This is center-pivot irrigation going on out in Nebraska, and what I really wanted is, I wanted this water to look rich, I wanted it to look like gold, I wanted it to look like money, I wanted to have that lush, rich feel to it.
Realising a dream with urban aquaponic farming
I went looking for places were I could see And I found a town up in Colorado that had a parade and they were naming the Irrigated Corn King, the 'Dryland Corn King, the-- all these corn royalty, you know? And they actually had a little model of a grain elevator on a float with this guy, you know? That's golden when you are a photographer like me.
I shot Cow Plop Bingo out there at-- Okay, so yeah I think you're-- you seem like a pretty savvy, savvy bunch. Well, then there was this: When we got to food safety there was a lot of anger. Everybody was, at the time, and still are, radically polarized by the whole thing. This was in Scotland, up on the Black Isle.

These guys were set up across the road protesting these crops. The efficacy of this stuff, of the GMO foods of course, is pretty clear. These two cotton-leaves here, one of them has been genetically engineered to be resistant to the insects and the other hasn't. It's really clear that, yeah, it can work. But it can also do this. These two salmon are the same age. One has been modified so that it expresses the gene for growth constantly, the natural salmon only does it sporadically. So, the problem, of course, then is if you modify the fish and the fish get out and crossbreed with the native population that gene that you modified rapidly eclipses all the other wild genes, uh, out there.
The food safety, which was also part of that was fun to do. It was harrowing to do actually because nobody in the United States wants to let you into a packing plant.
