UK vertical farming company Vertical Future is working to tackle industry challenges – in outer space – via a tie-up with the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre for Excellence in Plants for Space (P4S) research centre.
According to new research out of Scandinavia, vertical farming has a ‘mixed sustainability performance’, often requiring more energy than field agriculture. Given the dramatic rise in energy costs, how can the sector survive?
The Sustainable Indoor Farming standard is being launched by Control Union UK in collaboration with the Association for Vertical Farming to ‘fill a gap’ in certification for the vertical farming sector.
FlexFarming aims to help localise food production and is tackling one of the biggest challenges facing the sector – energy use – ‘head on’. FoodNavigator caught up with CEO Ahmad Mohseni to find out how.
