Believe it or not, it looks like farming is taking an “upward turn” – and hopefully in more ways than one!! As of this writing, crop and livestock prices were inching up. There appears to be some good negotiations on new trade deals that will favor more Farms and Ranches. Weather is not seeming to have as big an impact as of late. (Though that can change quickly.) Despite the COVID, there is some optimism in the Ag world!
Throughout the history of farming, crops need several things to grow, and it is seldom ever truly predictable! One of the newest factors that is becoming more and more difficult to have in abundance is one of the most important elements: space, land and fertile soil.
Present day farming already takes up a huge amount of land for crops to grow. We have more people to feed every day and therefore need more food everyday! Plus, certain lands have to “rest” to re-build their natural nutrients. On top of that , while the population of our world keeps growing ,more and more land is being re-purposed for other uses and some even in the name of LOVE.
So, unfortunately, our could be slimming. It is estimated that within the next thirty years, the human population will surpass 9 billion! Not only will they need more living space, but they will also require more food, which takes up even more area to be grown. Here is the latest PIVOT potential: vertical farming!
Vertical farming is the process of stacking garden boxes in a controlled environment, rather than spreading crops out in fields. With vertical farming, you don’t have to rely as much on nature to provide everything needed to grow crops or gardens. The grower can control the amount of light and heat that the crops receive. This process requires minimal soil and uses up to 95% less water than conventional farming. And there are NO bugs, meaning you won’t have to apply pesticides. You can have more control over more variables of your farm.
Not only that, but vertical farms can yield four to six times MORE per area than conventional farming methods. Vertical farming can definitely “stack up” as a viable solution to our world’s growing needs. It’s a win-win-win: more food, more control, and less space! In more ways than we can imagine then, things are certainly “looking up” for the farming industry!
