FAQ

What is a vertical farm?

Vertical farming is the practice of growing produce in vertically stacked layers. Modern vertical farms use indoor farming techniques and controlled-environment agriculture technology, where all environmental factors can be controlled.

At Future Crops we fill our with vertical towers with produce grown from special tailor-made tables for efficient and automated transport. Visually stunning, our vertical towers enable us to achieve yields of up to 30 times higher than the conventional outdoor farm. We deliver the precise amounts of light, water, nutrients and provide supreme conditions that enable our plants to flourish to their full potential.

What are the advantages of vertical farming?

Vertical Farms can be tailored to fit any building. They can feed more people because they grow significantly more food per square meter than a traditional farm.

By controlling the growing environment Vertical Farms do not need to use pesticides or fungicides providing healthier, safer food products untainted by chemicals. VF use significantly  less water as the climate and drainage can be more easily controlled and regulated.

Vertical farming can relieve the pressure on land consumption for farming and providing those lands to regenerate themselves which in turn reduces the carbon consumption associated with traditional farming and supply chain delivery.

How is Future Crops different from other indoor farming companies?

Future Crops produces sensational fresh herbs of unprecedented quality year-round. Using  breaking-through technologies that are tailored-made to our vertical farm we offer the purest and cleanest products with longer shelf life and consistent flavor from the same source staying close and loyal to Mother Nature.

The state-of-the-art technology in our vertical farm enables us to do so. We produce our quality products on soil, unlike conventional hydroponic vertical farms.

Why growing on soil is better than hydroponic farming?

We believe that nature is full of divine wisdom so the more we follow in her ways the better things will be. Nature grows crops in soil so we followed suit and in our research we have learned that growing in soil is more stable than hydroponics.

  • No nitrogen or other nutrients pumped into air
  • No smoke from agricultural burning

It’s no secret that power is among the largest fixed costs of any indoor farming operation.

Future Crops is committed to pursuing renewable energy sources as part of our power mix and ensuring our farm utilize energy in the most efficient ways possible.

How does Future Crops grow without sunlight?

We use LED lights to deliver specific light spectrums and intensities that are most easily and efficiently absorbed by our plants.

Unlike the sun, which delivers an uncontrollable amount of light across all color spectrums, we’re able to deliver a mixture red and blue wavelengths that plants can efficiently absorb.

Are products grown indoor loose their natural nutrients?

All research shows that crops grown indoor will have the same nutrients as those that are grown outside in traditional farming.
