Water is becoming an increasingly scarce resource - this has been on the radar for many years with geopolitical moves being made in parts of the world that will safeguard fresh water supply for some regions whilst draining others.
What can vertical farming and Vertical Future do to address the current and future water crises?
– Even basic hydroponic recirculating systems use up to 95% water than traditional farming, depending on crop type
– At Vertical Future, with aeroponics, we go even further, misting crop roots to provide the precise amount required for growth
– Using aeroponics also means less pronounced peaks in humidity during irrigation, improving the overall unit economics of the system
One of our leading partners and system users, Syan Farms, taking a step further, are also integrating rainwater harvesting and are even able to recover water from their on-site solar farm.
Tech leads the way again… and there’s far more to come!
