Vertical Farming In Northern Countries
360,000-kilograms of pea shoots, mustard medley, Asian mix and arugula microgreens as well as baby kale and baby arugula. This is accomplished by growing within a facility where temperature/environment can be controlled and light can be provided by efficient LED grow lights.
Northern Vertical Farming like this is great locally for people and the environment as this type of farming allows for seed to grocery store product year round. With no need for the use of pesticides, herbicides or funguscides which is a big bonus. Water use is greatly reduced compared to farming outdoors as 95% of the water is recycled. Controlled and predictable farming is achieved by companies using these new technologies and techniques and in cold northern countries it could be a game changer in the produce farming industry.
