Vertical farming is the practice of growing crops in stacked layers and under controlled conditions indoors. Temperature, light and availability of nutrients are controlled, meaning that crops can be grown indoors all year round. Crops are often grown in hydrophonic conditions without soil which increases water efficiency, only using around 10% of the water used to grown conventional crops. Tech Tyfu is a vertical farming pilot scheme based in North Wales looking to recruit farmers to grow crops in hydrophonic conditions with the aim to help food production become more resilient.
