This film shows the work at Hydroponics International where the "farmers" carry walkie-talkie radios and have an extensive lab to develop and test mineral solutions that modify the soil and result in optimum produce. Viewers see shots of a two-foot long bean developed here, as well as tobacco, ornamentals, vegetables and fruits. The produce was packed under the name "Vita-Veg."
