Interesting idea, but I do see potential environmental catastrophes depending on how much land is used -say goodbye to sea turtles.
"Monocultures used in agriculture are usually single strains that have been bred for high yield and resistant to certain common diseases. Since all plants in a monoculture are genetically similar, if a disease strikes to which they have no resistance, it can destroy entire populations of crops"from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monoculture
Even though plants are at the bottom of the food chain, they have survived because they are better at one thing than every other species -reproducing. No matter how well it was contained, seeds would get out and spread to unintended areas.
