    Add some fish and you have a hydroponic system which provides fertiliser from the fish and you could eat the fish also. I worry about the electrical requirements for a system though. With solar power they could be 100% efficient.

    What about birds? They can easily consume the crop from rooftop

    Good initiative but it would never cover the whole food demand in singapour. Nothing can replace the real nature.

    Linda C. Ventura Singapore is just too small and hydroponics is nothing new. A better model is for example: Bhutan. See: localfutures.org Besides, Singapore only exists in its current form because of Malaysia’s backward thinking and greedy “leaders”. In my view they should have never split as a country. Yet Malay leaders continue to bend history and enforce Islam as national religion when it is not, never was and never will be.
