Vertical farming is the practice of growing crops using soilless farming techniques such as hydroponics, aquaponics, and aeroponics in vertically stacked layers. It often incorporates controlled-environment agriculture, which aims to optimise plant growth with nutrients, lighting and pH. Vertical farming is perfect for high density living areas or to save space.

Hydroponics is simply described as growing plants without soil. Hydroponics allows you to control more of the variables including pH levels, lighting and nutrients for optimal plant growth and produce yields. Water is the main method of delivering the nutrients to the plant’s roots, combined with growing media to help support the plant. Hydroponically grown plants dip their roots directly into nutrient-rich solutions, so plants get more of what they need much faster and easier. Hydroponic farming can be used in locations where soil conditions are too poor to support farming, or where space is limited. It can be done anytime and anywhere!
All plants need access to the correct amount of food (nutrients) so that they can optimally grow and flourish. Over or under-feeding your plants ultimately results in plant health issues, not to mention the waste of expensive nutrients. The fundamental parameters of pH, conductivity and temperature all play a pivotal role in driving optimal plant health. Regularly measuring these environmental factors guarantees your able to optimise your plants’ nutrient uptake. While conduc
HEMP presents as a wonderful crop that not only enhances water retention and carbon sequestration but significantly contributes to the wellbeing of our climate. Farmers and growers that are interested in growing Industrial Grade Hemp are often left feeling confused and discouraged. This is generally driven by the fact that every state regulates this amazing plant in different ways. In saying that, the Hemp Farming application process is rather simple and Urban Green Farms can
