Digitally-controlled container farms
Such an innovative farm is based on a 40-foot sea container equipped with electricity and water supply systems. A similar farm can be loaded with seeds and sent by railway to the other end of the country. There, it will be connected to a common network to start seedling growth. In order to function, a container farm needs electric power and mobile communications so that it can transmit data on soil moisture, water supply, and air temperature to the operator. These farms do not need fertile soil. Once crops are harvested, the container can be loaded with new seeds once again.
