Farmers in the Netherlands are growing more food using less resources | Pioneers for Our Planet

This pioneering Dutch farm has found clever ways to generate higher yields using less space and fewer inputs. They’re growing food that’s more sustainable and economical too. Despite being a small, densely populated country, the Netherlands is one of the world’s biggest vegetable exporters. As our demand for food increases, could this efficient approach help define the farms of the future?

    A lot of this tech will help in growing food where people are whether it is in the cities or in space. Food security for a city breaks down in war when supply lines are cut off but vertical faming and advanced farming techniques can overcome thing. This also means tasty ripe tomatoes can be grown and delivered to the stores and restaurants direct.

    NWO way of life. Eating chemicals and tasteless food.

  3. Curtis Rice on July 11, 2021 at 2:17 am

    how do we connect with the guys doing this?

    The best tomatoes grow on the East of Antalya (Turkey )in natural ecologically clean conditions. They smell like tomatoes, and taste so good

    I’ve never bought the vegetables which are produced in Netherlands. I don’t care for plastic tomatoes from Netherlands…

  7. Orsolya Frank on July 11, 2021 at 2:19 am

    You’ll not only have more mouths to feed, we also need to give back land to nature, to help the planet to regenerate. We’ll need to produce more food on less area. What I see in this short film is very impressive, particularly the way of thinking in the background.

    Growing lots of shitty food while polluting the environement , yeah , great job … I’ll stick to my garden tomatoes thanks

    An alternative would be to reduce World population from present 7.5 billion people by a variant of the Covid-19 virus, for example developable in Wuhan laboratories, that reduces human fertility. That will eventually take the pressure off food-production systems. Otherwise, the problem is that the World population will increase to 10 billion people that is potentially unsustainable and subject to a sudden famine event with a lot of people suffering and starving to death. It would be much better to limit human population growth now in a controlled and humane manner.

    Does someone know the name of this company?

    Which are the scientific struggles of export those technologies to african countries?

  12. Ana Kamhi on July 11, 2021 at 2:28 am

    To see them tiling all that land makes me cringe

  13. P K on July 11, 2021 at 2:28 am

    You’re not fooling anyone but perhaps college kids or those who are wet behind the ears. Nothing taste better or is better for your body than homegrown produce straight from God’s own soil.

  14. Dani Daniel on July 11, 2021 at 2:28 am

    This is not organic food!! This is full of chemicals and GMO

  15. Athrun Zala on July 11, 2021 at 2:29 am

    tasteless genertically modified food closer to a plastic hard skin and rotten inside and fruits that don’t last long in your fridge.
    No more lab produce . . . thank you

  16. David Samson on July 11, 2021 at 2:31 am

    What was this video about?

  17. Aldebaran 369 on July 11, 2021 at 2:32 am

    Wonderful yes I have said this all the time where this method could be used across the planet especially in drought prone areas. Everyone should have enough space to grow their own food.

  18. Wolf Haley on July 11, 2021 at 2:34 am

    Anybody in las vegas interested in this life?

  19. stephane coffin on July 11, 2021 at 2:34 am

    Maybe eat wise and stop wasting is the key…
    Is it about 50% produced goes straight in the bin?

    As a German, I am really enjoying to see how our neighbours find solutions for problems we defintely have but do not see.

    Looks amazing!

  27. K W on July 11, 2021 at 2:41 am

    we absolutely cannot continue to produce food with hydroponics. you have high yields….. cool. oranges grown 100 years ago had as much as 8X the vitamin c as oranges today. hydro does not cut it. look through the comments. "tomatoes taste like water." "flavorless." "no smell" it isnt about pumping some elements in the plant to get it to grow. these nutrient solutions have a couple dozen nutrients at most to feed the plants. they consume well over 100 different nutrients when grown organically in LIVING soil. not dirt, coconut husk, repurposed insulation or some BS synthetic rock. the money is pushing ag in the wrong direction.

    another point, clean room greenhouses arent feasible, i dont think, so i imagine heavy pesticide use. shame. proper organic allows the plants to create more complex sugars which arent digestible for a lot of insects. they simply can not eat a healthy plant. if you need pesticides, fungicides, herbicides its because your soil is shit, which makes your plants shit. hydro is shit from the start so you should expect nothing else.

  28. Viking saiyan on July 11, 2021 at 2:42 am

    Well food straight from te land tastes better then the food from those big green houses, those things taste like water

  29. Uğurcan GÜLEN on July 11, 2021 at 2:42 am

    Guys i need some help on wheat planting and production.( i know the process, what i mean is that i have some questions to be answered by professional wheat producers)

    Although the Netherlands is a small and densely populated country, it has developed into one of the world’s largest vegetable exporters through modern agricultural greenhouses.

  37. JoeBob Jenkins on July 11, 2021 at 2:50 am

    In what universe is putting all those resources into all that infrastructure sustainable? You’re spending a buck to earn a nickel.

  38. Maxim K on July 11, 2021 at 2:52 am

    The best tomatoes grow on the South of Ukraine in natural ecologically clean conditions. They smell like tomatoes, and taste so good

    Farming is the job of the future .. 👏👏 🧠 truth be told .. thanks for reading ✌

  42. Henri Cherry on July 11, 2021 at 3:01 am

    Make it even more ecologically & plant some green between the greenhouses so insects can find food on their journey. Cause its actually crazy, having hektars without access to soil or plants in-between.

  43. Lisa Red on July 11, 2021 at 3:02 am

    Settling up an investment that would benefit you is something one would be aiming towards. I wasn’t really a fan of online business because I have actually been doubting this all my life because I have been taken before by several scammers. But after my encounter with AUSTIN my prospective of online trade changes and I I’m now a millionaire from bitcoin

  44. B 2 on July 11, 2021 at 3:03 am

    The Dutch tomatoes doesn’t smell tomato’s anymore…
    I remember, the natural smells so good and fresh…

  45. antoniio caluso on July 11, 2021 at 3:03 am

    STOP watching YT-videos about veggie growing…NOW! Start YOUR own kitchen garden, instead. Folks have been for 12,000+ years. Yes, far-bigger FOOLS than you. Make a 4′ x 4′ patch of fertile soil, some seeds, some regular water, some sun, a little care, & soon…POOF, great veggies & herbs. Call it "natural magic", if that motivates you 🙂 Just…DO IT!

  46. Abeonthehill on July 11, 2021 at 3:06 am

    ….a Merchant bought two Goats from a Farmer for £860.
    If the Merchant went to the market to sell them both and, he made a 25% loss on one and a one-third profit on the other.
    If the total profit on the sale of these Goats was £30; how much did he pay for each ?
    How much did he sell them both individually for ?

  49. Eugen Scobioala on July 11, 2021 at 3:15 am

    they are growing more food and sell their shit in our country with a higher price after they kill our agrarian culture. no comment 🙂

  50. Jenny A Badger on July 11, 2021 at 3:16 am

    Use how much quantity of water is not a problem, the problem is to use what kind of quality water to grow the plant.
