Israel has been using hydroponic to grow food that would not normally be able to grow in that country. They have been able to grow large amounts of citrus fruit , bananas and berries. The hydroponic has a yield that is more then 900 times great then what the land would produce using conventional means. Furthermore it can all be done with computers, that are controlled by robots. These robots work on a assembly line, kind of like a auto plant.

The one down side of hydroponic is that they are not cheap. There is quite a bit of upfront cost to get one of these systems in place, you will also need to have people who are able to fix the computers and the robots when they breakdown.
