Most usable farmland is in use, and if you want to restore ecological systems it may be best to reduce some (especially along streams and rivers) another option is needed.

Research and a few start-ups have started, but a lot more resources need to be used for Vertical Farming.
But unfortunately we have no leadership and too many lobbyist in this country.
