Advantages And Disadvantages Of Vertical Farming  

A scientific study shows that vertical farming can save a lot of space and also provide food for a large number of people. A single square block of thirty stories involved in vertical farming can provide food for nearly ten thousand people.

         There are several advantages of vertical farming. One is obviously the space advantage and other than that there is also curbing water wastage and minerals wastage. When vertical farming units are constructed the plants will use a minimal amount of water, minerals and soil and they are grown in a closed environment. The environment is stable at all times and the output can be guaranteed. It is also a pesticide free way of farming solution. More...

What Are The Water Advantages Of Vertical Farming

Vertical farming is the future of farming. Several scientists believe that by the year 2050, majority of the world’s population will start living in urban areas. There will be tremendous need for food, and this could almost lead to a crisis.The urban areas are also likely to expand more. So we need innovative and modern ideas to substitute farming requirements. In the natural environment, farming takes up huge amount of lands. It also uses up more water resources. The concept of urban farming can directly cut down the water requirements to very minimal standards. More...



Maximum Slope Requirement For Vertical Farming

Maximum Slope Requirement For Vertical Farming

Soil is required in vertical farming. Vertical farming is a modern way of growing plants with minimal soil requirements and also less resources. The biggest advantage of vertical farming is that it saves on place and other natural resources like water. The output and the rate of farming are increased in this type of farming.However, there are several requirements that have to be met for vertical farming. Water drainage poses a big problem in this concept. Plants have to find a way to use the water supply and there should be less drainage. This can be only attained by using a sloping way of growing plants. More...



Urban Vertical Farming

Urban Vertical Farming

Vertical farming is proposed as a large scale farming technique that can be used for large scale farming. With the use of the modern techniques of farming one can actually use less space, grow more and cater to a larger group of people. Also, concepts like vertical farming use very little resources.They have also been nicknamed as farm scrapers because the crops are grown in sky scrapers. Vertical farming mainly uses recycled materials and also green house methods to grow crops. They are extremely environment friendly. They use systems like hydroponics and aeroponics for cultivation of crops.More...






Chemistry-And-Vertical-Farming      Vertical farming is the process of growing plants in a closed environment in high rise buildings. Currently several agro scientists believe that the time for vertical farming has come. Space and other natural resources are a big issue in the current day world. People cannot invest in huge portions of land for farming, while the world consumption rate is increasing tremendously. So the only solution seems to be in the form of vertical farming. More..
