The Plant Factory is the is the most viable type of vertical farming but how far can we take this technology? In the last video we saw that the plant factory is more advanced than a hydroponic greenhouse. Not only does its use hydroponics but it also utilities artificial grow lights and multiple growing levels. It has a much greater level of control over it’s environment, allowing it to boost yield. While Plant Factories might be the most viable version of vertical farming, is it going to be enough to impact the global issues? Agriculture is both a contributor and solution to major global issues, from climate change to world hunger. Can the plant factory help to solve these problems? What technology improvements are needed to make vertical farms profitable and sustainable? From the LED grow light, to solar energy, future tech will play a key role in reducing the cost and carbon footprint of this technology. But it’s not just renewable wind energy that will improve the energy efficiency. There are many improvements that can be made and we look at them in this video. As technology improves, vertical farms can broaden the variety of crops grown profitably. The difference between growing lettuce and growing rice is significant. What will it take to close the gap? Find out next video.
