Mobile Farming, What's that?

Mobile Farming

There are two types of food being developed in the laboratory today, namely meat and dairy. These two types of food are produced from animal cells and microorganisms through fermentation. Cultivating food in this way is also known as cellular agriculture.


The way scientists make cultured meat is by extracting muscle stem cells or "microsatellites" from animals, and growing them in the laboratory to produce muscle tissue. Once formed, the tissue is fed, duplicated, and then arranged using a bioreactor so that it becomes synthetic meat.

Although this is a new idea to many, NASA has been studying and using this in vitro meat since 2001, for consumption by astronauts on long space missions.

While the idea of ​​laboratory-grown meat has existed long before this. It was Willem van Eelen, who filed the original patent for the idea in the 1940s.


A new method for creating animal-free protein and dairy products. By using microflora such as biologically engineered yeast, and fermenting plant sugars to produce milk proteins.
Then this material is used to create synthetic milk.


This food comes from cells grown in the laboratory, which are fed into a magnetic 3D printer and replicated to produce muscle tissue (meat) in various forms.

This technology was already used in 2018 by Russian cosmonauts when completing experiments on the Space Station
Internationally, they make 3D-printed thin steaks with cells taken from live cows.

Although synthetic meat is not yet widely available to consumers, mobile agriculture can reduce land expansion, water use, and chemical dependence, as well as minimize greenhouse gas emissions, while also breaking the dependence on raising and slaughtering animals on a large scale.

But mobile agriculture can also be a domain of monopoly ownership and power in the global food system. So that later it can turn off livestock, agriculture, fishing, and supporting industries.
