Vertical Farming - Vertical Takeoff 2025
The technology was first introduced in 2010. Singapore is the site of the world's first vertical farm. In 2018, China and Japan dominate this technology. They also have the world's most vertical farms. Researchers think that vertical farming will become the predominant mode of agriculture by 2025.
Here's why: yields, eco-friendly, sustainable.
Big Yield Bonanza
With vertical farming, you can produce more than 300-times of the same crop on the same sized land acreage.
New York City
Just 150 vertical farms at 30 stories tall could supply New York City with a reliable and sufficient food source. Consider the same for major cities around the world.
Pollution and Transportation Costs Dramatically Cut
Transportation costs and pollution are greatly cut as the food is sold at the vertical farm where it's grown.
Environmentally Friendly and Sustainable
Everything at vertical farms are re-cycled from water to organic matter. Making vertical farming sustainable and more e-friendly than traditional land farms.
The one drag on their development is the high cost of starting them up.
