2-Acre Vertical Farm Run By AI And Robots Out-Produces 720-Acre Flat Farm
Updated: Mar 3, 2021
Plenty is an AgTech startup in San Francisco that has taken vertical and indoor farming to the next level, reinventing food growing processes and allowing crops to be grown anywhere in the world, year-round.
Using artificial intelligence to manage water, temperature, and light variables whilst continually learning and optimizing to grow bigger, faster and better crops, Plenty's vertical farms can produce the same quantity of fruit and veg as a 720-acre farm with a mere 2 acres worth of space!
Furthermore, vertical farming of this magnitude has the capabilities to overcome common supply-chain breakdowns - made even more prevalent with COVID-19 - as it allows for food to be produced locally. This reduces food miles which in turn reduces CO2 emissions whilst also lowering costs for consumers!
