The median scenario of the UN 2017 world population projects that global population will reach nearly 10 billion by 2050. To feed such a large population, we need to optimize scarce agricultural resources such as land and water. Vertical farming is a perfect solution to this as it optimizes the agricultural resources to generate maximum output.
Benefits of Vertical Farming
- Year-round crop production.
- Eliminates agricultural runoff.
- Significantly reduces use of fossil fuels(farm machines and transport of crops).
- Makes use of abandoned or unused properties.
- No weather-related crop failures.
- Offers the possibility of sustainability for urban centers.
- Creates new urban employment opportunities.
- Reduces the risk of infection from agents transmitted at the agricultural interface.
