Abstract [en]

Vertical farming in urban environments has sprung out of a need to find alternatives to common practice in industrial agriculture. The way in which industrial agriculture is being conducted today has a wide spread negative impact on the environment as well as being economically inefficient in a number of ways. This essay serves to investigate the concept of vertical farming, how it might potentially alleviate some of the problems brought on by current agricultural methods and whether it might serve as a viable alternative in future industrial farming. Vertical Farming is a promising concept that combines environmental considerations with sound economics. It puts the spotlight on the negative aspects of current agriculture and provides a solution in accord with future global societal structures. However, as with any novelty, improvements can be made, a lot of which comes with technological improvements of a concept in development.
