Intensive farming in a place where land is costly and scarces
I have a thought. Can we have a multistoried polyhouse.
The concept is something like this.
The base frame of the poly house will be constructed with I beam structure. The beams and columns will be of I beams. The flooring is a big questionmark, lets leave that for the moment.
lets say you have 1/2 acre of land, and a 2 storeyed structure, which means u are converting it into a 1.5 acre of land.
Lets say the output goes up by 5 times due to the controlled climate, this means from 1/2 acre u theoretically get produce of 7.5 acres of land.
Friends look at the possibilities…
It sounds enormous to me.
A lot of problems with this concept, light, temp control, logistics, cost of construction etc etc … but i think this is still an enormous concept if we really get into brainstorming this.
Request your thoughts please.
