Vertical farms are fully controlled indoor environments based on controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) technology. This ensures that the crops grow in a perfect microclimate, enabling high yields all year round.
The harvest cycles are much faster than in traditional agriculture, and the yield is predictable: CEA excludes uncertainties like flood or drought, which are impossible to predict in outdoor agriculture.
CEA technology regulates all the essential variables of a vertical farm’s ecosystem to provide the optimal conditions for the plants:
