The world population is increasing at a steady pace. Since the population is growing so the demand for food supply is also rising. To develop more food, more land is necessary while prime agricultural lands are getting to be scarce and costly. Vertical farming utilizes less distance for growing more food. Unlike traditional farming, he also came up with new farming techniques such as Hydroponics and Aeroponics which has high production of food at less space and more yields (which takes less time).
