VERTICAL FARMING

THE FUTURE IN FARMING

The practice of producing food in vertically stacked layers, such as in a skyscraper, used warehouse, or shipping container. The modern ideas of vertical farming use indoor farming techniques and controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) technology, where all environmental factors can be controlled.

Vertical Farming is a revolutionary approach to producing high quantities of nutritious and quality fresh food all year round, without relying on skilled labor, favorable weather, high soil fertility or high water use.

Indoor Vertical Farming vs Traditional Farming: Yield per ft Comparison

One Multiple Vertical Growing System provides 250 square feet of growing space. This indoor system can produce 8 tons (156,672 plants) of specialty lettuce annually. For comparison, traditional leafy-greens farming would require an acre of land which is slightly less than the size of a football field to grow the equivalent yield.
