Vertical farming is the practice of growing crops in vertically stacked layers under straight controlled conditions. Vertical farms uses new technologies to reduce the load on the resources of the earth and uses only one fraction of land areal and water resources compared to traditional production methods. This type of production method is developing rapidly in North America and Asia, but European companies are also invested heavily in R&D and new production facilities.
