So far, most vertical farms around the world commercially grow leafy greens, microgreens and herbs. Some farms also grow berries, mushrooms, medicinal plants, flowers and various kinds of greens like tomatoes and cucumbers.
In theory almost everything can be grown in these farms, the question is rather when we are able to create conditions that are favourable enough for different crops to make sense both sustainably and commercially. Which, while we are at it, really should mean the same thing. If a product is not sustainable in all aspects of it, it has nothing to do on the plates of our customers. As the supply of renewable energy continues to increase, automation develops and we learn more on how to nourish our plants in the best possible way, we think there are fantastic opportunities for new crops to enter the vertical farming hall of fame.
