Published Date: | Report Code : FA1948894


Growing an adequate amount of healthy food in traditional farming is a big challenge. Protecting crops from bad weather, rapid urbanization, and industrialization, and lack of cultivable farming land are big problems for traditional farming.

Vertical farming is a non-traditional way of growing crops, which neglects the effects of climate, produce high yield, use minimum pesticides, consumes less amount of water, and requires less area for farming. The demand for vertical farming is expected to grow in the future due to factors such as a rise in the popularity of organic food, a decrease in arable food, an increase in urban population. However, vertical farming requires a high initial investment and advanced technologies.
