Vertical Farming, Plant Factory Market - Global Industry Size, Share, Growth, Analysis And Forecast, 2014 To 2020: Radiant Insights

San Francisco, California, Nov. 26, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Plant Factory (PF), vertical farming is a closed environment in which plants are grown under lights in shelves stacked one on another. All the elements needed for plant growth are artificially controlled, a process that removes detrimental influences such as pesticides and poor weather conditions. Traditional agriculture lives at the mercy of the elements. A plant factory is run based on science. Science is used to produce plants based on carefully controlled spectrum best for plant growth, to produce plants of a fixed quality, quantity, cost, time to harvest, and tuned to control the sale price.

Food factories produce organic vegetables. This represents a next step in the application of automated process to everyday life. Automated process for farming provides immediate help for food stores. Plant factories support farming practices that are not dependent on the climate. Food factories produce organic vegetables 24 hours a day. With the land available for farming depleting quickly, new types of farming are evolving.

Plant Factories Market Driving Forces:

  • Demand for ability to grow food consistently
  • Demand for ability to grow food locally
  • Can grow food in warehouses
  • Can grow food in the home
  • Dedicating space that is efficient for producing food
  • Fresh, sanitary food available consistently
  • Food factories
  • Ability to produce organic vegetables
  • Ability to produce vegetables 24 hours a day
  • Land available for farming depleting quickly
  • New types of farming are evolving
  • Growing of vegetables indoors all year round

A plant factory allows the growing of vegetables indoors all year round. It is a system that artificially creates the environment necessary for plants to grow by controlling the amount of culture solution, air, and light from light-emitting diodes (LED).Because the amount of light, temperature, humidity, and carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration levels can be optimized without being affected by the weather, the growth rate of vegetables is two to four times faster than those grown in open-air fields, and yields are ten to twenty times higher.Visible natural light has a spectrum different from grow lights. Visible light is measured by lux or energy. Plant factory grow lights are different. Grow lights provide artificial light used for plant growth. The spectrum of growth lights is tuned to the plant growing task. Plant light has photons from the blue to red (400-700 nm) part of the spectrum. This is called growth light.
