They look more like the brightly lit shelves of a chemists shop than the rows of a vegetable garden。  它们看起来更像是化学商店里一排排灯火通明的货架,而不是蔬菜园里的一排排菜架。
4 e: j' O' b( {6 c: j+ d4 Z  But according to their creators, these perfect looking vegetables could be the future of food。2 h* `; ^* I+ Q6 j: k" v. z
  不过据它们的创始人说,这些看来完美无瑕的蔬菜可能就是我们未来的食物。& K/ D+ ~% F! X3 P
  In a perfectly controlled and totally sterile environment--uncontaminated by dirt, insects or fresh air--Japanese scientists are developing a new way of growing vegetables。0 p* ]! b/ E/ p' u. T% `, A! D
  日本科学家正在开发一项蔬菜种植的新方法:整个环境完全由人工控制而且完全无菌,也就是说,这是一个既没有灰尘也没有昆虫和新鲜空气的环境。
3 r! H9 b/ H' G1 g  v0 u; ]  Called plant factories, these anonymous looking warehouses havesprung up across the country and can churn out immaculate looking lettuces and green leaves 24 hours a day, seven days a week。
/ ~8 S0 |! d* f  这些被称为种植工厂的不起眼库房如雨后春笋般遍布日本各地,它们每周7天、每天24小时不间断地大量生产这种完美无暇的生菜和各类绿叶菜。
* Y( T. H; `/ i* Q  Every part of the plant's environment is controlled--from the lighting and temperature, to the humidity and water. Even the levels of carbon dioxide can be minutely altered。
% A. o$ K! T! X2 c) E# L  植物的每个生长环节处于完全控制中:从照明到温度、从湿度到水分。甚至二氧化碳的浓度每分钟也有改变。
& N% r" R( ?8 P( T  Rather than the conventional scruffy clothes and dirty fingernails of vegetable growers, the producers wear gloves, surgical masks and sort of dust proof protective suits normally seen in chemical plants。
. b  `6 m* I7 @1 I  l8 P$ {; g  工人们不像传统菜农那样穿着破衣服、留着脏指甲,他们都戴着手套和医用口罩,还穿着通常在化工厂才能见到的防尘防护服。
9 P9 _/ `  c2 h& I3 \  The vegetables from plant factories--which include green leaf, romaine lettuce and garland chrysanthemum--are sold at a premium to Japanese shoppers. No pesticides are used--and there is no risk of contamination with food poisoning bugs。
3 \* x, o0 X* w& C1 r+ K  日本消费者高价购买这些绿叶菜、长叶生菜、茼蒿等种植厂的蔬菜。没有使用农药,也就不存在被污染的蔬菜引起中毒的可能。
, o) \" a  k, {& M( {$ V& p3 C1 P# OBecause the plants are grown in a clean room, they can be eaten safely without washing. Lettuce grown in the factories can be cropped up to 20 times a year。  因为这些植物种植在干净的房间里,不用水洗就可安全食用。在这里,生菜一年可以收割20次。5 T: q& `0 X4 E' O9 L
  Some factories are vast--and can produce three million vegetablesa year。
: X0 i4 T! h/ U% m  一些大型的种植工厂一年可以生产300万颗蔬菜。
5 n' R- @" R3 f4 C" Q; h, ~  The results are hygienic, but it's about as far from real food as you can possibly get。. k7 K5 P; o  o$ ?* `7 y$ t  t
  尽管产品很卫生,但这并非你所理解的真正意义上的食品。/ z. r7 [" O5 |7 Q
  The spread of plant factories has been encouraged by the Japanese government amid concerns about the use of chemicals in vegetables。7 Q! O, r) x! Y4 Q6 m+ d% U' ?
  在对使用化学蔬菜的担忧声中,这些种植工厂的普及得到了日本政府的支持。
; f: v1 q+ s- ]; E! _6 F5 i# b  A spokesman for the Ozu Corporation factory in Tokyo said: "Vegetables are produced in the factory without being exposed to the air outside."( k4 g: [8 ~% E" K* j1 a0 I
  东京大洲公司工厂的发言人说:“工厂内种植的蔬菜与外界空气完全隔绝。
; N7 Z$ R2 S; E* N  "Stable production is guaranteed throughout the year by controlling lighting, temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide and water. They can also meet the demands of consumers who want safe foods."
- A( ~. {- z" P# o  “通过控制照明、温度、湿度、二氧化碳和水,可以保证全年产量的稳定。这些产品还满足了消费者对安全食品的要求。”
( M# W* B$ u5 F" v0 Z  Plant factories have yet to arrive in the UK. The closest Britain has are the vast greenhouses in the south of England where millions of tomatoes are grown hydroponically--without soil。( F3 s- |' ]( q+ I) w: I
  这种类型的种植工厂尚未出现在英国。在英国,与此最相似的是英格兰南部广阔的蔬菜温室,那里数百万的西红柿不是种在土里,而是水培种植。
