Will vertical farming take place of traditional farming?
Vertical farming is key to the future of farming and will become a fundamental part of the overall agricultural ecosystem, but it will not take place of traditional farming.
Modern agriculture faces a number of challenges, which will only be exacerbated as climate and population conditions change. These include water scarcity, land-use and the problems associated with monoculture, the use of pesticides and their impacts on health and the natural environment due to their use. Vertical farming can help to alleviate these challenges.
