This drone video was shot at our demonstrator farm near Dundee, Scotland.
The video starts by showing the exterior of the farm (25m wide x 12m long x 10m high) containing 4 towers and an airlock.
The drone then flies in through the airlock and showcases several fully automated operations highlighting key features and benefits of our systems.

The future of agriculture may look very different? but how much is going to change and when is is likely to happen?
Traditional agriculture poses many global challenges, from food security to climate change. Can vertical farming improve the sustainability of our food production system? How big can the impact be? When will these changes happen?
There are many factors that help plant factories control their environment, from hydroponics and LED grow lights to CO2 regulation. However, indoor farming will have to boost it’s yield significantly if its going to be able to grow key crops such as rice and wheat.
These staple crops take significant light energy to grow and will require an energy revolution to realize. But with huge growth in green technology, can solar and wind energy be used to improve the sustainability of vertical farming? Can the challenges of renewable energy be mitigated with battery storage?
When can we expect these changes to happen?
