The craetion of giant indoor farm next to every bigger city could be the solution of many problems. The method consist in crops stacking in vertical layers. This approach of farming allows yielding more crops per square meter than the traditional one. Furthermore this way of production use less water, the plants are growing faster and can be used during all the year, no matter of the annual season.

The massive indoor vertical farm could solve the world’s fresh produce shortage using LED lighting, micro-sensor technology and data processing to deliver high yields, organic and pesticide-free produce using less space, time and resources. The farms have to be littered with infrared cameras and sensors that measure temperature, moisture and plant growth.
