Vertical Farming

 

Vertical farming is the practice of producing food in vertically stacked layers, vertically inclined surfaces and/or integrated in other structures. The modern idea of vertical farming uses controlled environment agriculture (CEA) technology, where all environmental factors can be controlled

 

Together with Starckgate Labs we openend the doorway to the next generation of innovative technology!

 

We challenge you to dream bigger then ever before and we will make it happen!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHY?

  • By 2050 up to 70% of the earth’s population will reside in urban centers.

  • Until then human population will increase by about 3 billion, applying conservative estimates.

  • Over 80 % of land area suitable for farming is used for crop production

  • We will need further arable land the size of Brazil.

Currently, we use 80% of the arable land we have access to globally. In the future, without significant change in today’s food production, it is estimated that at least 10-15% of the global vegetable production must take place inside cities by 2050 in order to maintain our current growth and consumption patterns.

Due to these demographic and environmental factors, significant changes are taking place within the Agriculture sector. Trends are showing that urban areas are placing increasing strain on the food industry and associated resources such as water, energy and arable land. As a result, the global market is experiencing increased food price volatility and Governments around the world are taking drastic steps to mitigate the future risks and challenges associated with their development goals.

Based on our urbanization trends, cities are becoming the hubs for the biggest human settlements and feeding the world population is now becoming practically ‘’feeding the cities’’.

The world’s growing population is becoming increasingly urbanised where today’s urban population exceeds that of its rural population

With almost 70% of the world expected to live in cities by 2050,
the strain on the food, energy and water system is increasing at an unsustainable rate.
