In the 70s in Spain using moon soil samples they grow crops, they grew faster and bigger than in earth soil, i tried to find a link for this but its too old and from a non us country so its as good as lost.
He will be researching whether or not it is possible to grow plants on the moon.
Will plants survive in Martian soil or moon dust? This question was initially prompted by Dutch plans to establish a colony on Mars.

I thought this was interesting news. So we know it works with certain vegetables,which means it is possible.
My question is, are they doing research on this because of our planned manned trip to Mars in 2021?
Could it be part of the plan for colonizing Mars?
