“Vertical farming is a fairly new industry, so we all have to work together to find the solutions that will work for our customers, crops and business models”, says Luca Travaglini, co-CEO and co-founder of Planet Farms. In this guest article, Luca shares his story to help other vertical farmers succeed.
In a few decades, indoor city farms or vertical farms have become popular for producing healthy food year-round in urban environments and harsh climates. Leafy greens and herbs are the most common crops in these facilities, but growers are looking to expand to a much wider variety of vegetables and fruits.

Find the optimal high-wire cultivation strategy, light recipe and best performing tomato varieties for city farms.
