This robotic farm uses 90% less water than traditional farming.

According to the World Resources Institute, the world population will be 10 billion by 2050.

That's 2.4 billion more mouths to feed than today.

That's a challenge that start-up Iron Ox is tackling.

Iron Ox wants to create more sustainable farming by combining robotics and hydroponics.

Hydroponics is the process of growing plants without soil.
