Vertical farming vs.
While indoor multi-layer VERTICAL farming
has been a trendy option for urban agriculture,
it has its limitations when it comes to the variety of crops that
can be grown and the complexity of its operations.
It also drives questions related to the use of resources.
This is why we focus our efforts to produce on one layer
in Greenhouses and called it HORIZONTAL farming.
Below you will learn why we choose HORIZONTAL farming
when we do AEROponics in the Greenhouse.
HORIZONTAL farming offers the ability to grow a noticeably bigger number of species compared to VERTICAL indoor farms.
GREENOVA can grow herbs, baby leaves, romaine lettuce, spinach and others:
+100 varieties of leafy greens
and +100 varieties of aromatic
and medicinal herbs.
Crop sizes in comparison are also more beneficial when growing in HORIZONTAL farming, almost doubling in size and weight.
While in VERTICAL farming there are
space limits, in HORIZONTAL farming
the plant grows better, also thanks to
the climate control that results
in homogeneous plants.
As a matter of layout, in HORIZONTAL farming the plants receive mostly sunlight thus using less artificial light. It also benefits from the natural greenhouse effect for heat and air circulation. Compared to Vertical Farming, it saves energy which is good for the planet and is more economical, .
