A glimpse inside a Chinese indoor farm

Vertical farming is big, and one of the biggest countries in the world, China, is no stranger to this movement. ECNS offers us a glimpse inside one of the country's indoor farms.

Here, vegetables grow in a plant farm belonging to the Institute of Advanced Technology at the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei, Anhui Province. The farm, housed inside a closed container, uses artificial lighting to help the vegetables grow well. Dr. Zhang Fangxin, the general manager of Anhui Angkefeng Photoelectric Technology, said the system allows plants to grow well even when placed in an underground space.
