What is Indoor Farming?
Indoor farming is a more sustainable and efficient way of growing crops when compared to traditional agricultural practices. Indoor farming includes greenhouses, vertical farms and other automated indoor crop growing systems and when paired with renewable energy you can create carbon-neutral crops.
Integrating Indoor Farming Logically
Predictions indicate that current traditional farming practices are not adequate to feed all the people in the world in the coming decades
Pairing indoor farming technologies with renewable energy, allows us to create carbon-neutral food. This technology requires less land, and can create more produce while avoiding common issues that come with pesticides and nutrients leaching from the soil.

Benefits of Indoor Farming
Yields are typically much higher than traditional farming methods. It’s estimated that global food production will need to increase by up to 70% in the next 30 years.
The hydroponic growing process can use as little as 10% of the water used by traditional farming practices
