Urbanisation, human population growth and climate change all contribute towards the need of more efficient farming methods for fresh and clean food. One of the solutions is vertical farming where plants are grown in layers using specially designed artificial lights.
Urban farming is by no means a new phenomenon but it is taking new shapes and coming back to towns stronger than ever. Effective farming methods like automated vertical farming is literally going to take fresh food supply into new heights. Especially crowded cities with little space and long transportation distanced or badly poluted areas are in great demand of clean healthy daily food.
