There aren’t enough vegetables in America for everyone | TreeHugger
New data points to a lack of nutritional diversity in the U.S., as well as a veggie shortage.
John Payne’s insight:
Not only is there a supply shortfall, but much of what produce there is goes to waste, in part due to blemishes, but perhaps also in part because people would rather rely on nutritional supplements than risk increasing their exposure to pesticides. It is my belief that robotics is the key to producing fruit and vegetables in greater variety without the use of herbicides and pesticides, by substituting mechanical management for poisons.
