Hope for countries with desert - farms with seawater and solar energy


How it works ? simple explanation

23 000 mirrors turn solar energy into fuel

this fuel is used to pump and desalinate seawater

then plants in the farm are irrigated later by that water

coconut husks are used instead of soil

seawater sterilizes the air so no pesticides are needed


this is not a dream but a working project !

Sundrop farms is the name of this futuristic facility and it is producing around 17,000 tons of tomatoes per year for Australian consumption

Qatar and the other Gulf countries could use the system to gain self-sufficiency in a food production .
