The crisis of the global food supply chain is the main challenge of our overpopulated world: arable farmland is decreasing; food demand is growing and fresh water is scarce. In-ground agriculture has proven inefficient and costly. Vertical Green has created a novel and automated High Pressure Aeroponics Farm (HPA) for large-scale production. Our unique system allows to combine natural sunlight with smart-LEDs to drastically reduce energy consumption. All cropping parameters are managed by a combination of IoT, AI and Big Data, generating key decision-making tools for farmers about present and future crop parameters. With Vertical Green the locally and sustainable cultivation of crops all year round is possible at 3 times smaller harvesting times and reaching crop yields 400 times greater than in-ground farming resulting in fair and competitive prices (64% less energy, 98% less water and 100% free pesticides).
