Vertical Farming- innovative agriculture

The world is set to reach 9.1 billion people in 2050, around the globe. Innovation is in demand which is one of the driving factors for the vertical farming. This would result in fulfilling the demand with less impact on land and water resources. Vertical farming is now being implemented around the world. Vertical farms produce crops in stacked layers, often in controlled environments such as those built by AeroFarms in Newark, New Jersey. The vertical farms are using the technology called aeroponics, allowing crops to grow on top of each other without soil, sunlight or fertilizer. AeroFarms claims that it uses 95% less water than a traditional farm due to its specially designed root misting system. Automatic seed planters, harvesting robots, greenhouse roof washers, indoor farming has long relied on automation, and this trend is increasing the demand for technologies. Many technologies are still emerging, like Canadian research group Vineland Research and Innovation Centre's trailing robot that picks mushrooms.
