Vertical farm – multi-level plant cultivation

‘Ver­ti­cal Farm 2.0’, de­signed by re­searchers from the Ger­man Aerospace Cen­ter (Deutsches Zen­trum für Luft- und Raum­fahrt; DLR) in col­lab­o­ra­tion with in­ter­na­tion­al part­ners, will en­able mul­ti-storey cul­ti­va­tion of plants in large cities. This would al­low for ex­treme­ly short trans­port routes and would not need arable land. Let­tuce, toma­toes, cu­cum­bers and herbs could be cul­ti­vat­ed and har­vest­ed all year round.

‘Vertical Farm 2.0’, designed by researchers from the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) in collaboration with international partners, will enable multi-storey cultivation of plants in large cities. This would allow for extremely short transport routes and would not need arable land. Lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and herbs could be cultivated and harvested all year round.
