  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Vertical Farms, Hydroponic cultivation, Innovation

The current agricultural and food systems are at risk due to growing urbanization, effects of climate change and reduction of resources. Recent technological innovations led the development and diffusion of the socalled Vertical Farms, where agricultural production is obtained in absence of solar radiation through the use of LED lighting, hydroponic cultivation systems and control of climatic and environmental variables. This article illustrates the main technological and sustainability components of these new production systems.
