He believes controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) in urban areas is the future of farming. The aim is to provide protection and maintain optimal growing conditions throughout the development of the crop. This enable farmers to produce greater variety of crops with predictability and consistency. This also significantly reduces the food mileage from farmers to consumers, bringing “farm to plate” for everyone.
