We find out how one of the world's smallest countries has become one of its biggest food producers. Could it be a model for global farming as we try to feed a growing population?
How has one of the world’s smallest countries become one of its biggest food producers?
This week we visit a tiny nation responsible for the second largest exports of farmed food. Its vegetable, fruit, and livestock farmers are pushing the limits of productivity – how do they get so much food out of so little land?
We visit a dairy farm run almost entirely by robots, one of the country’s many industrial-sized greenhouses, and a farm on the roof of a former factory.
With the planet’s soaring population, could this country be a model for global farming?
Plus, what impact is such intensive farming having on the environment, human health and animal welfare?
