Vertical Farm: Revolutionary Farming Technology for High-Yield And Sustainable Year-Round Crop Production

2023-04-14

Agriculture is the foundation of the national economy and the material source on which people rely for survival. Crop production is the foundation of agricultural production, which not only directly supplies the most basic living materials needed by humans, but also provides feed for animal husbandry, fisheries, and other agricultural needs.In China's agriculture, the planting industry accounts for the largest proportion and is the foundation of agriculture.The most important aspect of engaging in agricultural production activities is high yield and quality. Only by increasing yield and meeting quality standards can higher economic benefits be achieved. What are the ways to promote higher crop yields?

When it comes to farms, most people have the impression that they are just a piece of land, but the emergence of vertical farms has broken people's traditional understanding and given people a new understanding of farms. This new type of agriculture has achieved the freedom to grow vegetables in cities.Vertical farms are a development model similar to high-rise buildings, which simulate the growth environment of agricultural organisms such as water, sunlight, and temperature through technological means in skyscrapers to promote crop growth.

Vertical farms have advantages that traditional farms cannot have, mainly reflected in the following aspects:

1. Vertical farms can fully utilize urban space and save arable land.

Container planting is the most typical representative of vertical farms, which grows crops in renewable containers and achieves crop growth by providing a suitable growth environment for the crops inside the containers. This type of container planting can be stacked in vertical space, greatly reducing land occupation.

2. Vertical farms can achieve uninterrupted planting throughout the year, solving the problem of vegetable supply shortage

Vertical farms can achieve commercialized production, which will not be affected even in extreme weather, and can effectively solve the problem of vegetable shortage in winter. Moreover, the taste and nutrient content of this vegetable are similar to or even better than those grown in the soil.

3. Vertical farms produce healthy and pollution-free green vegetables

Vertical farms are a new agricultural production model that can effectively meet the needs of urban growers. The water and nutrient efficiency of hydroponic and aerial cultivation in soilless cultivation techniques is very high, as the roots can obtain these water and nutrients more quickly. This means that using vertical farms can greatly reduce the water and fertilizer required for growing food. At the same time, a closed and controlled environment for vertical farms can help prevent the occurrence of pests and diseases, which may reduce the demand for pesticides.

With the progress of science and technology and the demand for urban development, vertical farms will eventually usher in good development prospects. As a new model of urban agricultural development, vertical farms provide stable crop products for the city by utilizing very little land. This kind of agriculture is worth looking forward to!
