Farming the Desert
Baby basil are planted in PVC piping through which nutrient infused water flows at regular intervals at Hydro Greens hydroponics farm in Pahrump, Nev. The basil and other greens that will soon be served on restaurant china are cropping up in a hostile, sagebrush-spangled desert where no more than 5 inches of rain fall each year. Nevada's existing half-billion-dollar agriculture industry includes only about 40 acres of crops cultivated indoors.
