LARGEST VERTICAL FARM IN WORLD IS ALL SET TO OPEN IN DUBAI

Dubai, U.A.E 

The largest vertical farm in world is going to open in Dubai in December 2019. The farm will be based in a 130,000 square-foot facility and it claims to use 99% less water than traditional farming methods.

This is a wonderful news for the country, which imports around 85 percent of its food and only a small percentage of its land is arable.
For your knowledge this massive vertical farm is a $40 million joint venture between Emirates Flight Catering and agri-tech company Crop One Holdings. The produce from the farm will be used for in-flight meals on Emirates.

Dubai will have the world’s largest vertical farm for pesticide-free vegetables by 2019. Vertical farming uses hydroponic technology and enables the production of vegetables without using soil, sunlight and chemicals. The green facility is in line with the long-term vision to make the desert nation self-sufficient and capable of growing its own food. Source: Emirates. .

Crop One Holdings has announced the farm will use hydroponics technology to produce leafy greens vegetables. Nutrients will be mixed in a water solution that circulates through the plant’s roots.
The farm will rely on LED lights for photosynthesis but plans to go solar by 2050 in an effort to make it more sustainable.

Vertical farming concept is getting popular in places where agricultural space is limited or the land isn’t ideal for farming.
