    All good and really impressive. Just a concern for power outage with a storm blocking solar resources or lack of wind. How is the electricity derived and delivered? Crops vulnerable to significant loss, if impacted since vertical farming is in a condensed environment. Of course, these concerns can be mitigated if not already done so. Again, Kudos!

    Vertical farming practice could be compare to the introduction of four-field rotation! A great innovation, maybe a could be called even a revolution, that can help us saving lands, reducing the emissions of CO2 and so on.
    But I am still puzzled about the application of this technic to the cultivation of products like, wheat, corn or even fruits. Because these kinds of cultivation require a lot of space and doesn't seem realistic and especially cost-effectively to grow them in a building.

    I really like the concept. With farms like these, we can save fresh water and save space. Space which can be used to plant trees.
    You don't need to build these directly in the city, but around the city where land is a bit cheaper, use solar energie for the building and there you go.
    It will probably take a bit, until farms like these will be profitable, but current farms are also highly subsidised and would otherwise go bakrupt, so perhaps with the right amount of policies it could work.

    Small footprint except for all the buildings and lights. I like vertical farming because if an asteroid ever hits we could be very quickly into an ice age, so it's good to have indoor farms as well as outdoor farms, also maybe on Mars you could have a vertical farms. How about vertical farming centres for growing tree seeds and then plant them outside, that would decrease carbon. What is being vertically farmed ?

    The solution of air pollution is storing exess carbon in the air and water supplies should in the soil by no-till/ cover crop method, not with this kinda crap.

    Of course

    When in near future 70% of the global population, 90% in OECD countries, live in urban areas, vertical and urban farming MUST become the solution.
