    Nagalase. What is it? Why is it being administered to 'surplus humanoids'?

    Nagalase is an enzyme found in the body and it has a role to play in breaking down the sugar we take in our food into other forms that can be utilized in the body in the struggle for survival.

    In answer to your second question - I had no idea it was.

    I saw a video where they monitor crops with drones and another with a rolling green house. The interesting thing about the big green houses - it keeps the bugs out so you can eliminate pesticides. I saw another where hail is a concern and green houses help ward that off. In National Geographic there was a recent article about the dutch farms - they are cutting edge technology and produce so much, they sell to many countries.

    This Tiny Country Feeds the World
    The Netherlands has become an agricultural giant by showing what the future of farming could look like.

    This story appears in the September 2017 issue of National Geographic magazine.

    In a potato field near the Netherlands’ border with Belgium, Dutch farmer Jacob van den Borne is seated in the cabin of an immense harvester before an instrument panel worthy of the starship Enterprise.
    From his perch 10 feet above the ground, he’s monitoring two drones—a driverless tractor roaming the fields and a quadcopter in the air—that provide detailed readings on soil chemistry, water content, nutrients, and growth, measuring the progress of every plant down to the individual potato. Van den Borne’s production numbers testify to the power of this “precision farming,” as it’s known. The global average yield of potatoes per acre is about nine tons. Van den Borne’s fields reliably produce more than 20.
    That copious output is made all the more remarkable by the other side of the balance sheet: inputs. Almost two decades ago, the Dutch made a national commitment to sustainable agriculture under the rallying cry “Twice as much food using half as many resources.” Since 2000, van den Borne and many of his fellow farmers have reduced dependence on water for key crops by as much as 90 percent. They’ve almost completely eliminated the use of chemical pesticides on plants in greenhouses, and since 2009 Dutch poultry and livestock producers have cut their use of antibiotics by as much as 60 percent.
