This Cube Can Grow 10,000 Lettuces in a Year

New technology is improving the way we grow things every day. Increase in quality, speed of growth and yield per square inch are all things that have benefitted from new technologies.

Japan's Daiwa House Industry are the latest company to get in on the action. They've built a system that's smaller than a car parking space and can produce around 10,000 heads of lettuce in a year.

The Agri Cube comes with a self contained water recycling system, lights and is all set for growing root vegetables and salad greens. It  system currently costs around $70,000 to buy but we think this is the sort of technology will eventually make its way into the home.
