Vertical farming can elevate your grow operation and agricultural process. Compared to traditional horizontal rows, vertical farming maximizes the potential of your space and increases your yield. If you’re utilizing Controlled Environmental Agriculture methods for your crops and want to get the most out of your space, vertical farming could be the ideal solution for your grow operation.
What is Vertical Farming?
Vertical farms allow you to creatively maximize the use of your space, resulting in a higher crop yield per square foot. Vertical farming is primarily used in indoor facilities, such as warehouses, building-based farms, or even shipping container vertical farms. These spaces allow you to control the environmental conditions for your plants and increase their ability to thrive. While most types of plant or herb can do well in a vertical farming structure, experts note some plants, such as peas, tomatoes, hops, and corn, do particularly well.
