Vertical Farming on the Rise: Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station and 80 Acres Farms Enter Research Agreement
80 Acres Farms enters into master research agreement with the Experiment Station at The University of Arkansas with scientists to propose collaborative vertical farming research projects aimed to advance the science of vertical farming
An ongoing argument within the industry is a question of size - is it better to focus on building a large, highly automated plant factory to minimize production costs, or is a small, more flexible approach the best way to set up a vertical farm?
Other factors driving the market include growing urban population, and reduced environmental pollution. However, high initial investment and crop production of limited varieties restrict the growth of vertical farming market.
Seeing, localising, and taking plant-specific intelligent action are no longer the exclusive realm of humans. Machines have demonstrated the technical viability and the emphasis has long shifted to the finer details of ROI, reliability, business model, etc.
By carefully tailoring the environment to the exact requirements of the crop, such as through using LED lighting to produce the exact light spectrum needed for optimal photosynthesis, it is possible to obtain yields hundreds of times higher than traditional agriculture.
AeroFarms® to build world's largest R&D Indoor Vertical Farm in Abu Dhabi as part of USD $100 million AgTech investment by Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO)
The farm will be dedicated to state-of-the-art R&D and commercialization of relevant local crops utilizing AeroFarms' expertise and proprietary indoor vertical farming technology that uses up to 95% less water and zero pesticides vs. traditional field farming.
The Ag Economy Barometer is based on responses from 400 U.S. agricultural producers and this month's survey was conducted from April 19-24, 2020.
Coronavirus Has Highlighted the Problems in Supermarket Supply: IDTechEx Asks if Vertical Farming Could Be the Solution
The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted wider concerns about the security of the notoriously complex supply chains that modern supermarkets rely on. There are several middlemen standing in between the farmer and the consumer.
Supporters of vertical farming claim it could revolutionise global food production, practically eliminating food miles by enabling crop growth right next to urban population centres, paving the way for the future of smart cities.
The size of vertical farming market was anticipated as $3 billion in the year 2018 and is predicted to touch $20 billion till 2026, rising with a CAGR of 27% between the years 2018 to 2026. Rising environment and climate concerns across the world will propel vertical farming.
Representing a major advance for plant biology, the findings have important implications for the management of dangerous crop diseases which represent significant threats to food security.
