Agritech and agro-ecology at the service of agriculture

Increase crop yields, save water, avoid treatments: vertical farming is revolutionizing the world of agriculture.

What's the problem ?

Agroecology is the integrated use of nature's resources and mechanisms to improve production. It combines ecological, economic and social dimensions and aims to make the most of the interactions between plants, animals, humans and the environment. Today, in vineyards, orchards, market gardens and cereal crops, and whatever the production sector, agriculture has to cope with an increasing number of extreme climatic events to ensure sustainable food supply.

Vertical Farming an agronomic and economic response

It favors biodiversity and self-regulation of systems, but its effectiveness depends on the adoption of these new technologies by the players involved. This is a "lock-in" that mechanical and digital agricultural equipment will have to support through innovation. Food production requires significant resources in terms of water, energy and land, and vertical farming provides a solution by optimizing the growth conditions of each plant in a controlled, fully automated environment.

The advantages of vertical farming

Vertical farming (VF) uses up to 90% less land than traditional agriculture.
VF requires up to 90% less water than traditional agriculture, which can be recycled.
Vertical farming (VF) uses up to 90% less land than traditional agriculture.
VF helps to strengthen resistance to climate change, as crops can grow all year round, regardless of the increasing frequency of extreme weather events, droughts and floods.
Possibility of converting disused buildings for urban agriculture.
VF combined with renewable energies produces an extremely efficient combination.
