The new emerging trend of vertical farming …

Vertical farming as the name implies uses less area for the same amount of crops because it can spread vertically ( not horizontally). This practice uses less water and saves energy because it can use renewable energy technology to produce light to grow crops . Led lamps and colored light can be efficient in energy consumption for growing crops …This process can reduce Co2 emissions produced for transportation as food supply would be closer to major population gatherings…The vertical farming is more immune to pests like insects and so little or no pesticides are required probably …The buildings can protect the plants from all weather conditions more than traditional farming. Countries like Iceland do use geothermal energy from volcanic water flow to keep the temperature of the habitat of the plants inside at a warm temperature in such a cold climate . UAE is doing what it can to expand the production of food in such deserts through adopting vertical farming .These are just a few examples of countries promoting such new agricultural practices . The food can reduce the food waste that can be recycled nevertheless…This process requires less fertilizers and less water as even rain water can be gathered for nourishing the plants .As nutrients are supplied properly through water in a balanced manner , the agricultural yields are higher ( higher productivity …) Besides , less lands used for agriculture would allow more spaces for forests and biodiversity .Would this practice that is also related to hydroponics and aquaponics continue to develop and progress ? Everything is possible if God wills …
