Vertical Farming, Greenhouses and Traditional Agriculture
The way forward – for more food, for better food, for all! The history of agriculture and horticulture is largely one of biological and technological innovation and development. There is a long line of progress from the domestication of ancient grains to advanced machinery in farming, to CRISPR for plant breeding and ever-more efficient LED lighting. Plant growers, plant scientists, engineers and innovators have continually made crops more productive and more resilient to disturbances. The biological and technical methods for their production have also increased yields, without increasing resource use in the same proportion.
