7 P, EASTERN TIME (USA) -- TUESDAY, June 8th, 2021
“Vertical Urban Farming:  A Technological Solution to
Framing in the 21st Centure & Beyond”

Speaker: Paul P. G. Gautier

Director R&D, New Products and Systems Innovations,
Bowery Farming

 

Amid accelerating climate change, with global human population projected at 9 billion by 2050 --- 80% in urban areas --- achievement of food security has grown ever more urgent. To meet this demand, crop yields would need to go up by 60%, yet agricultural land is not expanding. Vertical urban farming, offers a solution, thanks to recent advances in Al, robotics & LEDs. With the potential to optimize: plant growth, crop yield, protein value, supply chains, market access, and land use with minimized disruption to native plants and animals, this technology has captured the attention of industrial, federal and private investors alike. Our speaker will discuss its history, current status of the technology; hydroponic, aquaponic & aeroponic techniques; and then delve into the industry's future challenges to increase: energy efficiency, crop diversity and nutritional value.
