Experts predict that within the next 10 to 15 years, vertical farming will be the dominant form of agriculture. Given that trends within the last of 5 years indicate an exponential increase in vertical farming, this prediction seems to be accurate. Vertical farming has many advantages, such as increased global production of food, low cost, and high quality products. Now more than ever and due to the coronavirus pandemic, vertical farming is even thought to attract many people and organizations such as governments and investors.
- A recent webinar suggested that vertical farming will become more ubiquitous in the future.
- Some experts believe that technology has finally reached the point where it can support the dreams of past visionaries.
- The coronavirus pandemic has shown how important government and investor support is to the future of farming.
“Of course the elephant in the room wasn’t ignored by the panel. COVID-19 has had an impact on all industries, and vertical farms are no exception.”
