Abstract

With every passing year, there is an exponential rise in human population. Due to this, the challenge of not having enough cultivable land is becoming a rising issue. It is also predicted that most of the world’s population that currently lives in rural areas will have shifted into urban cities. This will lead to an increase in urbanization and a further reduction in arable lands for agricultural purposes. As a solution to these issues, this paper proposes the idea of vertical farming and Hydroponics in specific. Hydroponics uses a fraction of the space required for traditional farming, uses 90% less water, and can reap practically organic produce all year round. This paper reviews the process of vertical farming, its benefits, and its different types. A detailed methodology that can be adopted to create a hydroponic system has been suggested. In this paper, Lettuce, Basil, and Kale have been used as primary examples.
