Hi-tech tomatoes growing in a greenhouse the size of 11 football pitches | ITV News

Traditionally a summer staple, nature and science-based nuture is being used to grow hi-tech tomatoes all year round in a huge greenhouse in Suffolk.

To give it its proper title the ‘hydroponics module airglasshouse’ at the Blakenham Nursery site at Bramford near Ipswich covers the area of 11 football pitches.

It’s the most technologically advanced farming of its kind in the UK.

A carbon dioxide enriched air filter system, nutrient-enriched water, red LED lights and controlled summer-like conditions all help the plants grow at an optimum rate.

Each tomato plant will grow at 35cm per week eventually reaching up to 15 metres in height.
