Yeah also the effects of harsh chemicals in the soils also prevents a switch from being feasible. The soil is dead and it takes years to properly revive. That or a lot of money.

That’s why we’re working on helpful fungi and modified plants to resist pests and help prevent blight. Hydroponics also takes away the soil issue, but it’s much more expensive to set up.
