Vertical Farming

Vertical Farming is an idea that rather than growing our food on land that takes up so much space around the world, we can grow our food in towers. This would be accomplished through the use of artificial environments that would mimic the optimal environments needed for many fruits, veggies and grains to grow. Changing the world’s agricultural practices from land farming to vertical farming would make a huge impact on many of the problems that plague the world.

Vertical farming would take up much less space than conventional farming. This will mean that we will be able to grow much more food. This will also save us from continuing to destroy land through modern day agricultural practices that include the use of so many chemicals.

The fact that we will be able to grow much more food would help the issue of the growing human population. We do not need to worry about whether or not there will be enough food for a few billion more people. It will also help solve world hunger. To be fair we could solve world hunger right now. Unfortunately, many countries are very wasteful. However, vertical farming would produce so much more food that there will certainly be more than plenty to feed the many nutritionally deficient populations of the world. The mass production would make prices go down for a lot of food as well.

Vertical farming would provide the optimal environment for many foods to grow. This would mean that we could have all different types of fruits and veggies in their optimal form all year round. We will not have to wait for certain foods to be in season because the artificial environments would make them always be in season. There would also be no need for pesticides because there would be no bugs or animals to deter.

Vertical farming would be revolutionary. It would make a positive impact in so many ways. It would help combat land destruction and climate change. It would help provide food for many starving populations and the growing human population. It would make prices go down. It would make all fruits and veggies in season all year round. It would even eliminate the need for pesticides. It would even make cities more self sustainable because the city can grow all the food it needs for its’ population. It would not need to import from other places. Vertical farming is the farming of the future. The quicker it is implemented the quicker we will see the positive impacts it will have around the world.
