In the late 1700s Thomas Malthus, a British scholar, predicted that population growth would eventually outstrip the agricultural production capability of the earth. More than 200 years later, human innovation has proven Malthus wrong as improved farming methods have allowed the Earth to support billions more than Malthus ever thought possible. The Earth’s human population continues to grow, however, and continued innovation will be necessary to ensure that sufficient agricultural resources are available to support more people. Vertical farming is an exciting concept that may help diffuse the population bomb, allowing comfortable accommodation of continued population growth. Greengro can help entrepreneurs and innovators interested in this concept with proven, data-driven vertical growing methods.
The concept of vertical farming has been around since the ancient Hanging Gardens of Babylon were constructed, but the idea has gained momentum in the past century as modern construction, electrical and agricultural techniques has made it more feasible. A vertical growing system is essentially the propagation of plants in a skyscraper greenhouse or similar indoor structure where crops may be grown on several levels. For home users, vertical grow rooms use indoor fluorescent lights and stacks of crops to grow plants. The stacks are slanted to give the crops better access to light. Because there are stacks of crops, owners of vertical grow systems get the maximum efficiency from their growing space.
