    Kale is an excellent choice for you and indoor farming!

    By Nicole Otte

    Published Jul 12 

    Nutritional Benefits of Kale and the Effects of Indoor and Traditional Farming MethodsWhen you are talking about growing food it isn’t as simple as planting a seed and watering it in hopes that it grows to abundance... With different types of farming you get different results... With indoor vertical farming the approach is quite different... You can also grow a much larger crop size considering that the farm is vertical and gives much more room for additional crops to thrive. With kale being one of the most nutritionally beneficial plants on the culinary market why are we not utilizing our knowledge of indoor farming to grow as much as possible? Even Danish economist Per Pinstrup-Andersen says that “it's time to take vertical indoor farming seriously”...

    Nuisance Lawsuits are Taking a Bite Out of Big Pork

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Aug 17, 2018 

    These suits are brought against farmers when someone else, usually a neighbor, is objecting to some part of the farming process and how that process affects them. Noise complaints, dust issues, odors and flies are just some of the unfortunate byproducts of farming that simply are part of the process and often simply cannot be helped... Around the time when RTFs were being drafted, factory farming and Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) were just coming into regular operation... At the same time Leuter began buying out the competition, Smithfield Foods began their quest for total vertical integration farming into their plan. Vertical integration farming happens when a single company owns every part of the farming process from livestock breeding facilities and nurseries through the slaughterhouse and packaging and distribution of the end product...

    Farmer Focus - Clive Bailye - Going Trailed

    By Direct Driller Magazine

    Published Mar 25, 2019 

    I was once told the difference between a good farmer and a bad one was “a week” so I have always placed ability to travel and make timely application of inputs highly on my list of farming priorities... Get enough wildlife working through your soils vertically and they create a massive network of small drainage channels that can quickly help move water from the surface down to storage in subsoils or out to existing drains very quickly. Worms do this very effectively and I have seen studies that show the combined area of the galleries they can create in a long term zero till soil can total the equivalent of a 4” drain every square meter of the land, if you try to visualize what that would look like it’s very difficult to imagine water ponding on any surface with a vertical drain every squaremetre... I’m not a big fan of strict controlled traffic farming systems (CTF)... Although maybe a necessity in farming systems that depend greatly on very heavy high horse power tractors my view is that it’s surely better to just not use potentially damaging machines when you have viable lighter, lower ground pressure alternatives usually employed in zerotill systems...

    The Future of Fruit Farming: MD2 Pineapple

    By Jenny Hoo

    Published Sep 13, 2019 

    Pineapple pineapple cultivation Of late, the talk of the town seems to be revolving around the planting of MD2 pineapple. The questions is, why is this MD2 pineapple so popular?Pineapple is known to contain highest amount of vitamin C among all various types of fruits. It also contains a fair amount of magnesium, calcium, potassium and iron and develops a bromelin, of which is a type of enzyme. First started back in 1961, a hybrid variety namely “73-114”, developed by Pineapple Research Institude (PRI) in Hawaii was found to be extraordinary and was taken to Costa Rica for its first trial industrial planting... This smart farming method allows farmers to monitor their produce from farm to fork effortlessly...

    Vertical farming is not new, and has been around for quite a few years. After much research, I am inclined to believe that they are a great urban solution where no green space exists, but understand that they are no "silver bullet". Having lived in Maine for a several years, I am familiar with Backyard Farms and many of their challenges: https://www.mainebiz.biz/article/third-times-a-charm-for-madisons-backyard-farms. Tech is a valuable tool, yet has limits with respect to controlling biological processes. When they work, they work great; when they fail, they can fail spectacularly…

    "Since it's become more challenging to find additional farmland to meet our growing food needs, farmers are starting to go vertical", some vertical farming stocks to watch - We're in AppHarvest, but the other three recommendations, I've never heard of.

    Been watching indoor, vertical farming for awhile.. I like where its headed for a number of reasons.. one being the utilization of vacant buildings.

    Agricool raises 28M USD to make urban farming a reality

    In 2030, 20% of products consumed worldwide will come from urban farming (compared to 5% today). In the past 3 years, Agricool’s teams have developed a technology to grow local, healthy fruits and vegetables more productively and within small and controlled spaces, known as “Cooltainers” (recycled shipping containers transformed into urban farms). Thanks to this new funding round, Agricool will be able to confirm its role in the development of this new type of agriculture, while positioning itself as a key player in the segment of vertical farming in France and worldwide. Agricool plans to multiply by a hundred its production by 2021, in Paris first, then internationally starting with Dubai, where a container has already been installed for several months in The Sustainable City.
