A new farming method for Singaporeans is promising to transform their food production by using fresh, locally grown vegetables.
Singapore’s National Agricultural University (NAU) is looking to help farmers grow their own vegetables by using a new method of organic farming called biofarming.
The project is currently in its early stages, but its expected to have a significant impact on the agricultural sector.
The aim is to create an entirely organic food supply.
The University of Singapore is one of Singapore’s largest academic institutions, but it has a long history of agricultural innovation.
Its roots lie in the country’s colonial era, when it became one of the world’s largest sugarcane and rice producing countries.
But its influence has grown over the past two decades, with many of its students studying at prestigious institutions in the US, Britain, the UK, and Australia.
One of the earliest researchers of the process, Dr John Lee, is currently a senior lecturer at NUS.
Dr Lee is currently an associate professor at the University of Sydney, where he researches how plants grow under different environments.
He said it was the first time Singaporeans had been able to replicate the process.
“What we have done is replicated a number of different aspects of organic agriculture, and that is to start from scratch,” he said.
“You need to start with an organic soil, you need to grow organic vegetables, you can grow organic fruit and vegetable crops, you don’t need to buy fertilisers or pesticides.”
The most important thing is that you start from a seed that you know will grow.
“It’s not a lot of seed, but the seeds are the most important part of it.”
Dr Lee said the organic method he and his students were trying to replicate had two main advantages over traditional methods.
The NUS organic farm at the edge of Singapore has become the first of its kind in the world.”
Second, you only need to harvest when the plants are full of leaves, which you can’t do in traditional organic farming.”

The team hopes that it will create a new source of income for farmers who are already struggling to make ends meet.
The university’s organic farming project is being funded by the Singapore government.NUS is also a major donor to the Singapore Agricultural Research Institute (SARI) and has supported more than 100 students since the early 1990s.
But it is also committed to environmental issues.
Dr Choi said he was encouraged by the recent announcement that the government is looking at a green energy investment fund.
“I am very excited about this, and hope that this will help Singapore to be more environmentally friendly and sustainable in the future,” he added.
