2. The 7 misconceptions about agriculture, as described in the PlantLab TEDx video

The 7 obstructing misconceptions about agriculture from the TEDx video are:

  1. We can continue to feed the world’s growing population using existing agricultural practices.
  1. We must make plants adapt to nature.
  1. What plants consider paradise is the same as what humans consider paradise.
  1. Crop production must be done horizontally, and it requires pesticides and significant amounts of water.
  1. Food must be grown where nature is kind to it and then transported to consumers around the globe.
  1. Food must be grown on a large-scale.
  1. It will take years before the technology that PlantLab describes will become a reality.
