Grow Higher - Vertical Growing Systems

Vertical farming could bring vegetable production to urban centers

Vertical farming allows for produce growth in urban areas. Not only does this cut down on transportation costs, but gives growers a chance to farm year-round. The use of vertical farms frees up space on traditional farms, which use tons of soil, and helps re-establish biodiversity. With the use of artificial intelligence, vertical farming is booming as there is a lot less need for manual labor. The plants themselves also benefit, as the environmental stress factors of a traditional farm are gone, producing higher yields.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vertical farming uses controlled light and temperature conditions and requires no soil and little water.
  • The cultivation of crops requires flexible production structures that benefit from the use of AI.
  • Controlling wind ventilation and light wavelengths can determine the size and shape of plants.

“This would eliminate transportation routes and return soils back to nature, thus promoting biodiversity.”
