sustainable farming

Vertical farming supplements traditional farming while embedding sustainability in agricultural practices.

Producing fresh greens and vegetables close to these growing urban populations could help meet growing global food demands in an environmentally responsible and sustainable way by reducing distribution chains to offer lower emissions, providing higher-nutrient produce, and substantially reducing water usage and runoff. Sustainability is core to our mission to feed the world!


How do HRVST vertical farms compare to conventional farming?

Faster crop growth

Our vertical farming technology allows up to 40% faster crop growth

Higher yields for a lower land footprint

HRVST farms can produce up to 55 times more produce per unit of area

Stable production year-round

Vertical farming solutions can withstand unpredictable conditions such as those brought about by climate change

Superior quality and greater traceability

Consumers of HRVST products know exactly where they came from and how they were produced

Lower carbon footprint

Growing crops using HRVST vertical farms produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions than conventional farming. Where possible, HRVST vertical farms are powered by renewable energy

Reduced emissions associated with transportation

HRVST vertical farms allow crops to be grown closer to the communities where they will be consumed, reducing the need for long-distance transportation.

Reduced water use

HRVST vertical farms require considerably less water than traditional farming, and products grown in HRVST vertical farms do not need to be rinsed – resulting in further water savings.

Reduced fertilizer use

HRVST vertical farms require considerably less fertilizer than traditional farming

No pesticides

Products grown in HRVST vertical farms do not require pesticides, eliminating the risk of water contamination.

Reduced waste

HRVST vertical farms recover and reuse water as well as the heat generated by our LED lighting system. As well, vertical farming results in less food rot and wastage than traditional farming
