In June of 2015, the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health published a white paper comparing hydroponic and conventional farming methods. Their research reveals that lettuce grown in southwestern Arizona needed less water (in liters per kilogram) and had a greater yield (in kilograms per square meter) for hydroponic growing as compared to conventional farming.
The trend toward growing hydroponically, intensively, and vertically as we do with Urban Fresh Farms is growing. According to research published in April of this year, the vertical farming market is expected to be valued at $9.9 million by 2025, just 8 short years from now.
The time for Urban Fresh Farms has come. We look forward to serving you soon!
