Special Report: Farm-Tastic

Los Angeles lacks traditional farms, yet it has a surprising number of companies that specialize in sustainable agriculture. One company featured in this section covers farms with pheromones, confusing insects trying to find mates without killing them. Another develops indoor vertical farms with seemingly fantastic results; yields are up to 300 times greater than normal while using only 1% of the land and 5% of the water. Also in this section: An interview with Wonderful Co.’s Steven Swartz, who explains how the company is striving to be “more innovative on the sustainability front than anybody in agriculture.”
