This will prevent crop losses and enable plants to be grown in all seasons and to the same levels. What’s more, indoor farms can produce food where it is most needed: in cities. By arranging the crops vertically, large areas can be farmed in small spaces. This also brings an end to lengthy transport routes and refrigeration requirements.
Hydroponic methods also make it possible to grow crops without soil: the plants are grown using mineral nutrient solutions and the required micronutrients can be added at any time.
