Millions of crops can be grown each year in tall units without soil at Bedford’s Infarm, a vertical farm of 10,000 square meters (2.5 acres) in size. According to the company, the farm used 95% less water than traditional agricultural methods and did not use any harmful pesticides. Indoor farms will probably play an important role in the future of agriculture, according to Jo Churchill, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs. The UK’s sustainability and food security depend heavily on indoor farms that grow food using the hydroponic technique.

They also have this cutting-edge technology in addition to the conventional. If they can create better and more diverse ways to distribute food to both the consumer and the producer, there is room for everyone to produce at their maximum capacity. The Bedford location is Infarm’s first large-scale growing facility in the UK and can house up to 40 cloud-connected farming units, each standing 10 meters high. Each unit can grow more than 500,000 plants or enough plants for a football field’s worth of food each year. This farming method should increase the options available to young people, notably in the areas of robotics, artificial intelligence, and plant breeding.
