How China plans to feed 1.4 billion growing appetitesRemember the really cool report National Geographic made about the Dutch Greenhouse Industry? The one with the cool photos, stunning drone footage and gorgeous images? Well, they've done it again. This time though it does not concern the tiny Netherlands feeding the world, but the magazine shows how the next giant plans to feed the world.
1.4 billion growing appetites is what China has to take care of. The article does not only concern vegetables, but also includes poultry and cattle. The overview shots of the dairy operation combine greatly with the pictures of the suburban housing north of Kunming, Yunnan, where high-value crops are being grown in greenhouses.
