What is Vertical Farming ?
Vertical farming is a concept to cultivate plants within skyscrapers, or on vertically inclined surfaces.
Why Vertical Farming ?
Vertical Farming
Why introduce vertical farms so early?
It is estimated that by the year 2050 world's population will increase by 3 billion and to feed such a population 1 billion hectares of agricultural land will be required.
As we have seen that Vertical farms are more than just a concept, they are a necessity.The earlier we introduce them, the more time we get to improve them.
But this is only the tip of the iceberg.
Vertical farms offer innumerable advantages.
Vertical farms might look like this huge mountain, offering a solution for global food crisis.

Year-round crop production.
No weather-related crop failures.
It reduces the incidence of many infectious diseases that are acquired at the agricultural interface.
VF greatly reduces fossil fuel use (no tractors, plows, shipping.)
VF converts abandoned urban properties into food production centers.
VF uses soilryte instead of natural soil, thus there is no need to dig up the earth which leads to soil erosion.
Crops belonging to various parts of the world can be grown in a VF through weather simulation.
VF offers an optimal use of available resources and no additional wastage of agricultural inputs.
