Agriculture is what made us move from hunter-gatherers to civilised humans. The Agricultural Revolution gave birth to cities, to empires, to states and to governments.

Throughout the ages, agriculture has evolved. During the industrial revolution, people could plant crops and rear animals with more efficiency. The scientific revolutions gave us pesticides and GMOs.

But one thing which didn’t change during all these years is Land. We still need land to plant. Actually a plant doesn’t require soil to grow. It needs Carbon Dioxide, Water, nutrients and light. One way to make farming more efficient is building vertical farms, that is , indoor farming or hydroponic farming.

Vertical farming will also help fight climate change if it is integrated with renewable energies, it will help fight overpopulation since less land will be needed for farming.

This is the prelude to the edutainment series on vertical farming.

Before we can understand why we might want vertical farms, we need to understand the problem with current agriculture and how it effects key global issues such as global warming and water security. As critical as farming has been for humanity, scaling up the production of outdoor crops poses big questions around how it affects the environment and its sustainability.

This video looks at the current state of agriculture and it’s impact on global challenges such as food security, deforestation, climate change and other issues. It asks what is the cost of continuing with our current method of agriculture.

The next video looks at the viability of different vertical farming methods and asks if vertical farming works.

Vertical Farming is the Future of Agriculture

About The Author


  • Wannes Van Aert

    I am really interested in agriculture. I think the future lies in vertical farming, labo meat and gmo's. Thats why Bayer seems very interesting to me as well. Especially with the acquisition of Monsanto. Maybe you already did, but can you make an in dept video on Bayer? What about the glyphosate jurisdiction? Some say they took on too much debt when bying Monsanto. What about their competitors, because Bayer is also active in the pharma sector? Do you think they have room to grow and most importantly, is there a margin of safety? Thx anyway. I completely understand if this is too much work.

    Could you post links to all your sources for us to go over? For the statistics and claims you gave in the video.

    Great video. I can't wait until the next one. Now let's get to fixing these problems. I run a solar company currently tackling these problems from the other end (energy), but we need every industry working on this and immediately.
