Vertical Farming is one of the trending farming techniques used in the agriculture. It is used to control the environment with the help of monitoring required humidity, temperature, gasses, light. Agriculture technologies is used to include hydroponic (water-based), aeroponic (mist-based), and geoponic (soil-based) systems in the concept of Vertical Farming. It gives attractive look to a Vertical & Horizontal Farm. It also gives a freshness environment to the surrounding and make the design attractive. In modern agriculture we can use innovative ideas & processing to look forward to the future in Vertical Farming. It is generating the latest technology to Indoor Vertical Farming. It helps satellite & GPS technology, sensors, Smart irrigation, drone & automation etc. and it is effective part of Precision Parming.
The main components of vertical Indoor Farming are:
- Multi -layer production shelves conserve Horizontal or Vertical square footage and maximize the available space.
- Growing system associates with Vertical Farming solution in height based on the long-life span shelves system.
- Single source lightning
- Stalk layer is present & absent of soil.
Indoor vertical farming includes year-round crop production. It does not affect any kind of weather conditions. It gives better space, looks dynamic and innovative farming for the agriculture. Water is saved in maximum proportion, healthy & ecofriendly. No transport needed.
Vertical farming is the practice of growing crops in vertically stacked layers with often to incorporates controlled-environment agriculture, which optimize plant growth, and soilless farming techniques.
They are more expensive to build on bridges, greenhouse large amount of energy it takes to grow crop. Instead of growing fruit and vegetables on huge farms and then transporting it over long distances in trucks and planes, vertical farming can supply local produce from neighbourhood buildings. It increases the reputation and the way of seeing a company infrastructure.
Benefits of Vertical Farming are:
- Ensures Consistent design of vertical farming Production.
- Uses Space Optimally.
- locality is increases the traditionality and better impact on society.
- Less Labour Costs.
- Energy Efficient.
- Does not involve Chemicals or Pesticides.
- Limited Occupational Hazards.
- Reliable year-round crop production.
- Unaffected by adverse weather conditions.
- Minimise water usage.
- Environmentally friendly.
- Highly energy efficient.
Commercial Vertical Farming is utilizing vertical space to grow business-oriented agriculture. where crops are grown vertically for commercial purposes. Conventional commercial agriculture uses large swaths of land to grow produce horizontally, commercial vertical farming uses height and stacked layers to grow crops.
Vertical Farming with innovative and sustainable agriculture techniques has potential to complete change in the design. It is effective with unique concept of growing food in line with Indoor farming, urban agriculture, and controlled agriculture environment.
