By combining the knowledge and experience in engineering and agriculture, we decided to develop our pioneering solution. Our mission is to deliver innovation in the agricultural sector and provide an ecological alternative to conventional farming methods. In this article, we want to share how our company tries to make a difference.
Farming has been a part of human culture for thousands of years. It is an ancient practice that was a significant force for the civilization’s development. As we entered modern history times, there have been several agricultural revolutions. They brought new machinery and genetic engineering. That enabled to start of large-scale farming with monoculture crops. It was a step forward in limiting the world’s hunger, but it comes with its price – the degradation of the environment.
Agriculture is one of the leading causes of environmental damage. Large-scale farming has become increasingly popular in the last century. While this type of agriculture can be very efficient, it also harms the environment and our health. Unsustainable farming practices result in high carbon emissions, soil degradation, and water pollution. As the global population continues to grow, the demand for food will also keep increasing.
Concerns over the growing population and climate change were some of the reasons for a worldwide boom in alternative methods of food production. Vertical farming is one of them. It offers several critical advantages over conventional farming. Growing produce in a controlled indoor environment eliminates many risks associated with harvesting crops outdoors. This farming method also significantly reduces the risk of crop failure caused by weather-related issues such as droughts, floods, and extreme temperatures.
Another essential quality is that it can be applied around urban areas, as it can be used even in small spaces. It is possible to grow plants using hydroponics and LED lights, enabling year-round crop production under controlled conditions. It can be far more efficient than traditional agriculture and uses a fraction of the resources.
Vertical farming is a great leap forward to new agriculture culture. It is a resource-efficient, sustainable and healthy way to grow food with less environmental impact. Additionally, an indoor farm can positively change food producers’ working style and efficiency thanks to intelligent growing systems and robotic assistance.
Most importantly, it empowers local entrepreneurs to start environmentally friendly food production. A more decentralized global food system can help create a network of local growing centers that serve urban communities.
Our purpose is to build a more sustainable and inclusive culture of farming. We want to have a positive impact on the world. Choosing sustainable food production methods, such as vertical farming, is more critical than ever. Local and eco-friendly agriculture can help to reduce or even eliminate negative environmental impacts.
At our company, we believe that businesses are responsible for giving back to society. We strive to create products and services that positively impact the world and are constantly looking for ways to make our business more socially responsible. Ethics and reliability set steering in our work. High standards of work are what we adhere to at Hydropolis. We are doing so by assuring the transparency of our working methods and always focusing on the highest excellent of provided services.
Some argue that traditional farming can produce enough food to feed the world. Vertical farming, on the other hand, is a type of agriculture that can give high crop yields while improving the supply chain. The truth is, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. What’s certain is that the need for alternative farming methods becomes more evident as the world population grows.
To grow enough food for everyone, we need to look for more efficient agricultural methods, and indoor vertical farming is one such. It is essential to remember that vertical farming in its current form won’t replace other forms of agriculture. But it is a way to grow certain high-value crops efficiently. It is also a way to supply the population in urban areas with locally grown produce. Making food production local and sustainable is an important step forward.
We believe that by working toward this goal, we can make a positive difference in the world. We are constantly working to reduce our environmental impact and make our products and services more accessible. Businesses can be a force for good in the world, and we are committed to doing our part to make that happen.
