Advanced Container Technologies (OTC: ACTX), the exclusive U.S. distributor of self-contained, automated, indoor “micro-farms” called GrowPods, has noted that its innovative controlled environment farms could be key to feeding the world, which is projected to reach a population of 10 billion by the next generation. Such an increase would require a 70% increase in global food production, the United Nations has forecast. With that as a backdrop, controlled environment agriculture offers a potential solution because of its ability to produce high yields in small spaces using little water and no soil. Controlled environment agriculture includes indoor and vertical farming practices such as hydroponics, aeroponics and aquaponics; these practices combine to create sustainable, optimized growing conditions that protecting crops from pests and diseases. Industry experts note that these growing environments have potential to provide access to affordable, high-quality and nutritious food, with one leading research projecting that vertical farming may take over approximately 50% of the leafy green markets in the country. “I believe that it’s possible that vertical farming can take over approximately 50% of leafy green markets in the U.S. and portions of small fruit and tomato markets in 10 years,” said research plant pathologist Dr. Kai-Shu Ling.
