SuperPonics is the fusion of 3 proven hydroponic methods, which allows urban farmers and gardeners to reap year-round crops using 90 percent less water and no pesticides. Climate controls, automated LED lighting by KIND LED and hydroponic irrigation systems, and technology for monitoring and maintaining crops remotely, allow farming and gardening with minimal oversight. Many local organic grocery stores are testing in-store farms encased in walk-in glass rooms, along with an app that alerts consumers about what produce is available that week.
Considered the possible salvation in wake of climate change, the indoor lettuce has an additional selling point. Scientists claim the indoor crops have 8-10X more beta-carotene and twice the amounts of calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C than crops grown outdoors. Pair that with the reduction in energy consumption by using LED indoor grow lights and you have a perfect marriage of sustainability and organic products.
Indoor farming is picking up around the world in all urban settings on personal and commercial scale in other countries as well, including Mongolia, Japan, and Russia.
