Vertical Farming

What is Vertical Farming?

Vertical Farming means that you do farming vertically – or in layers.

Which makes farming possible on a much smaller area than with ordinary greenhouses, horticultures and fields.
With Vertical Farming, you use cubic meters instead of square meters, and still achieve the same amount of crop.

Take a look at our animated film about Vertical Farming at the bottom.

Suitable plants

With current knowlegde and development, not all crops are suitable for indoor farming, as Vertical Farming is.

Vertical Farming in layers is particular suitable for smaller low plants, such as:

  • Lettuce
  • Herbs
  • Babyleaves
  • Chili
  • Mushrooms
  • Flowers
  • Etc.

Beside that, Vertical Farming advantageously can be used for hanging plants, such as:

  • Tomatoes
  • Pebbers
  • Etc.

Pros and cons

As with everything else, there are both pros and cons in vertical farming.
However, we see far more advantages than disadvantages:

Since Vertical Farming takes place indoors, it opens up the possibilty of farming inside the cities and close to the poulation, which provides fresh and local products, without long time transport.

Minimal infection:
Instead of soil, the plants stand in nutrient-rich water. They are protected against wind, weather, cold and heat.
Since the plants don’t have any contact with either soil or dirty human hands, the risk of bacteria, pesticides etc. is decreased.

Total control:
In order to achieve the most optimal growth conditions and subsequently the best raw materials, it requires a good management of the climate.
The possibility of total control above the humidity, temperature, lightning, fertilization, irrigation etc., is great with vertical farming.
Moreover, the artificial light also makes the production independent of both season and climate. 

Energy consumption:
When total control is achieved, by measuring and analyzing all parameters, you know exactly how little or how much the plants need.
The control provides a more accurate amount of fertilizer, as well as a reduction in water consumption.

By farming in a smaller area, money can be saved on rent, like mentioned above: water consumption and transport.
On the other hand, the costs for lightning, ventilation and heat can be bigger, unless more renewable energy is considered.
It is difficult to say with 100% accuracy what is most profitable – it requires a deeper analyze and a bigger overview.


Vertical Farming can be much more effective with automation.
