A lunar base is valuable economically as a foothold with relatively easy access to all of space. The burden of such a base will be providing it with resources. If a base can grow food for itself then it will become much less of a burden. Many factors surrounding lunar agriculture have been studied although plants have never been grown on the moon. This report examines the problem and proposed a strategy for productive agriculture on the moon.
