Nanjing Fuxing station in Taipei cultivates vegetables in a technologically advanced setting that assures precisely controlled humidity, temperatures, and other elements promoted as a method of cultivating unpolluted and healthy plants, Taiwan News reported on Wednesday.
"One thing that most people are worried about is the unavoidable use of pesticides in traditional land-based farming," said Julia Yang, an executive of Unimicron Technology, the company behind the underground metro farm.
The 40-square-meter "Metro Fresh" hydroponic farm cultivates lettuce under LED lighting without pesticides or herbicides. It uses high-tech equipment to control factors like light, temperature, and nutrients that are most conducive to the growth of plants.
