Vertical Farming Listed in Time Magazine’s list of the top 50 inventions in 2009 and Troy Media’s top 50 forecasts for 2010
Time Magazine reports that real estate is the one thing we’re not making any more of. That might be good news for landlords but not for the world’s farmers, who have finite cropland to feed a growing global population. The answer: build up by farming vertically. Vertical stacking and growing of fruits and vegetables hydroponically enables the use of far less water than conventional farming. But best of all, by growing upward instead of outward, vertical farming can expand food supplies without using more land.
