Vertical farming is an innovative technique with architectural design intervention, which minimizes land usage, while still sufficing the fierce demand of food. Vertical Farming is basically indoor agriculture where food grows on trays or hanging modules in Bioclimatic buildings that respond to climate by controlling it. These facilities or buildings create an artificial environment within them and allows certain types of produce to be grown year round without pesticides or natural sunlight. Post harvesting produces can reach to consumers within few hours.

Although, Vertical Farming is a viable form of agricultural practice that supports effective and efficient harvest with only 5% of water usage for five times more the yield, with up to 350 times more greens than conventional farms of similar size, is yet not cost effective. Vertical Farming requires an initial capital investment of $200 to 500 million.
