industry is growing in other nations, too. Japan has more than 150 vertical farming businesses with artificial lights. A business in Germany has partnered with Kroger, a leading U.S. grocery store, to offer vertical farming units that can be installedin-store and inside restaurants. In Singapore, where 90% of its food is imported from over 30 countries, the nation’s firstvertical farm opened last year.
Besides demand, vertical farming is expanding because it can reach consumers quickly. By 2050, according to the U.S.Department of Agriculture, 66% of the population is expecting to be living in urban areas. “Producing fresh greens andvegetables close to these growing urban populations could help meet growing global food demands in an environmentallyresponsible and sustainable way by reducing distribution chains to offer lower emissions, providing higher-nutrient produce, and drastically reducing water usage and runoff,” the USDA wrote.
With its technology in place, Living Greens Farm is ahead of many others in an embryonic global business that is rapidlyevolving. Living Greens Farm might not be your grandfather’s farm, but the food tastes just as good, less manual labor isrequired, and crops are not ruined by weather whims. The time is right for a new way to generate food in an environmentallyfriendly way.
“With dwindling amounts of land that can be used for farming, as well as the decreasing amount of clean water availablefor farming it just makes sense,” Klingler said. “Living Greens Farm plans to play a big part in this path forward and is excitedto see what the future holds.”
“Abusiness in Germany has partnered with Kroger, a leading U.S. grocerystore, to offer vertical farming unitsthat can be installed in-store andinside restaurants.
A water line set into the energy chain feeds the plants and feeds the plants, delivering about 5,417 gallons of water per hour. Living Greens Farm has 86 traversesystems in operation to help grow its products.igus
