Weird Farming Techniques
The heading might sound a bit boring to you. But believe me, these techniques are very interesting and will force you to dig more.

Across the globe, above the globe or under the globe. These weirdest farms are made by extreme engineering of humans, right from Antarctica to International Space Station. The most inhospitable locations, to serve mankind.

Cultivating In The Antarctica
The first greenhouse is about to come up in Antarctica this October.
‘Eden ISS’, a shipping container will arrive at the Neumayer III polar station in Antarctica.
According to reports, it will grow 40 different plants, including basil and strawberries. Polar researchers have been relying on the food these units produce, from a long time. This new model is designed to withstand regular temperature dips, that goes below -220C. You know, plants provide a psychological comfort also, as there is a horticultural therapy in psychology.

Space Farming
Astronauts carry frozen food with them, and get totally bored with it. That’s one reason, why NASA is innovating its space gardening machinery. Its latest tool, the ‘Advanced Plant Habitat’, was sent to International Space Station recently.

The Advanced Plant Habitat is the size of a mini fridge, and will produce tomatoes and basil. It will also provide researchers on Earth with real-time data, on how plants grow in zero gravity. This way NASA will save the money spent on sending food to ISS. Right now, shipping a loaf of bread to space costs `5.69 lakhs.

Fruit farming began sometime between 6000 and 3000 B.C. Figs were one of the first cultivated fruit crops.
Under The Sea
Nemo’s Garden project installed in the Bay of Noli in Italy, is growing strawberries, beans, lettuce and herbs in five transparent biospheres anchored 20 feet at the bottom of the sea. These glass enclosures look like greenhouse. They use seawater’s unchanged temperature, and the unique red spectrum of sunlight that can break through the ocean’s surface to encourage growth. Right now, it’s very expensive to grow underwater. But the team is focused on researching the effect of underwater growth on plants.
