A GLOBAL NEED
Crisis of global food supply chain is the main challenge of our overpopulated world: Arable farmland is decreasing, food demand is growing, fresh water is scarce and climate change consequences are already here. In-ground agriculture has proven inefficient, so new sustainable farming technologies are urgently needed to complement conventional agriculture. Our mission is to fight the rising global food demand with food grown at your doorstep. Our goal is to deliver a sustainable cultivation method that minimizes the current agricultural footprint while reducing cost as well as resource usage of energy, water and soil and to maximize crop yields.
In collaboration with three other US companies we are developing ‘Vertical Green Rapid Deployment Portable Farms’ utilizing innovative aeroponic and vertical fertigation plant growing technologies such as lighting & irrigation systems, container structures, and plant support systems. Vertical Green aims now to develop an efficient version of the farm structures with proprietary expandable containers, improved performance for the state-of-the-art co-developed devices, and changes in materials that will optimize performance issues identified in their current integration. The final objective is to create the most advanced portable indoor farm worldwide that produces a substantial amount of high-quality vegetables while saving water and energy. The objective is producing cost-effectively fresh vegetables anytime of the year in any part of the Earth whatever is the sunlight and climate condition, minimizing water and energy consumption and reducing waste management.
