Advancing Vertical Farming
August 24 @ 08:00 - August 26 @ 17:00
What is the inaugural Advancing Vertical Farming Summit?
Global food production as we know it is at the beginning of a huge transition. New technological innovations are opening new farming paradigms such as vertical farming. As the world populations continue to rise, communities continue to urbanize and climate change places increasing uncertainty on crop production, global food security is falling under increasing pressure as the frailties of traditional food supply chains are increasingly being highlighted.
Now more than ever before, there is an urgent need to identify and develop innovative methods for sustainable food production at both national and local scales. Vertical farming stands to be one such solution, offering a promising avenue of food production that could offer sustainable and innovative solutions for global food security and realizing true zero-mile city food supply.
However, for such a transition in both global and local food supply chains to be met, there are several unique and complex challenges to vertical farming that must be overcome. Only then can vertical farming realize its true commercial, social and environmental potential. Uniting vertical farming industry leaders, academic scientists, investors, policymakers and buyers to tackle the industries greatest challenges this multi-disciplinary forum will discuss
- Better understanding plant physiology and your growing environment
- LEDs and developing light recipes
- Climate control and air management
- Harnessing the power of sensors, big data, and AI
- Energy challenges of running a vertical farm
- Getting Investors excited
The Advancing Vertical Farming Summit is set to unite the industry experts to tackle such challenges enabling you to optimize your farms’ productivity, efficiency, sustainability to ultimately maximize profitability. This will be an unrivaled opportunity to join 80+ like-minded thought-leaders from cross-disciplines in the indoor farming sector and to foster new connections and partnerships.
