The first thing that comes to mind when you think about the produce section in your grocery store: Is 1: that it's freezing cold, which means you immediately run to the pantry aisle after grabbing your veggies and 2: I wonder where my fruit and vegetables are coming from? Do you ever think about the impact the produce section has on our environment and health? Every item goes through an extensive amount of work to grow, package, transport, and unpack the fruits and vegetables which are most likely sprayed with pesticides.

Growing food in our increasingly variable climate is a challenge.

Growing crops in a controlled environment provides an alternative approach to conventional farming which is free from the pressures created by extremes and variations in our weather, isolated from pests, and allows crop growth at a wider range of latitudes.

Vertical farming is a relatively recent development with the first commercial vertical farm being reported as developed in 2012 in Singapore. Grand View Research estimated that the value of the vertical farming market would reach almost US$10 by 2025.

Developing indoor vertical farms requires a good understanding of all the requirements each crop plant will need for optimal growth and development. As a relatively new technology, research can have a big impact on how successful these enterprises will be in the longer term with expertise in plant physiology supporting improvements to these systems.
