Vertical farming is a modern farming method that addresses the pressing problem of water conservation in agriculture. As traditional farming methods strain freshwater resources and exacerbate water scarcity, vertical farming offers a sustainable solution. By using hydroponic and aeroponic farming methods, vertical farms can reduce water consumption by up to 90 %. In this blog post, I would like to write about the importance of water conservation in vertical farming and introduce the innovative water-saving technologies used in this industry.
CO2 certificates have been around for some time, you can buy them and thus pay for your CO2 footprint or buy your way out of being allowed to emit a certain amount of CO2. Vertical farming CO2 certificates are therefore only a matter of time. In this article, I explain the problem, give an insight into where energy conversion losses occur, how this affects the profitability of a site, and my personal opinion on the matter.

Why does vertical farming fail, or why do companies fail in this area? In today's post, I want to write about these issues as an advocate of sustainable and innovative farming practices. I've been doing a lot of research on this concept and have discovered some of the challenges it faces. In my last post, I already talked about the challenge of Vertical Farming and Staple Food written.
Those who know me know that I am in the vertical farming business. While I'm not in the lab or indoor growing facility on a daily basis, I've seen live what it's like, what the problems are, and what the solutions are to challenges.
Vertical farming and power consumption is actually one of the most important topics in the industry, but it is usually given little attention or glossed over with buzz words, at least it seems to me that people prefer not to throw out the hard numbers. As a trained electronics engineer, however, I know that the reality is different and not necessarily so great when you look at the energy requirements.
For more than 8 years I'm already a web developer and working in my self-employment, there come more or less known sites, technologies, CMS and stacks to eyes where you think to yourself "Hey, that's WordPress!" or "OMG, that's Joomla/Typo3 :O", some websites you can see that directly, with others I only need to read briefly in the header of the page source and know what this page is built with, what I'm dealing with, what theme is behind it, what plugins are used and who adheres to the DSGVO/GDPR or not, yes, I have so found some websites already, where the Google Analytics anonymous_ip was not set 😉 . But no one pays me to report other sites, nor would I get money to take care of the errors of another site.
