The world’s population is expected to exceed 9 billion by 2050. By the same year, it is expected that two out of every three people will live in urban areas. Vertical agriculture will help expand agricultural operations and increase food production. Producing fresh greens and vegetables close to these growing urban populations will help meet growing global food demands sustainably by reducing distribution chains to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, providing higher-nutrient produce, and substantially reducing water usage and runoff.
