Farm Qatar is an indoor "vertical" farm that grows and harvests thousands of crops each day, watered and raised by LEDs around the calendar and supplies the local restaurants and grocers, similar to Mirai farm in Japan. Qatar won’t have to import any crop outside the nation anymore if it is grown in Qatar Farm. The indoor farming technology market was valued at $ 23.75 Billion in 2016, and is projected to reach $ 40.25 billion by 2022, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.65% during the forecast period. One of the main advantages of indoor farming is its higher yield compared to traditional farming, which makes indoor farming a viable method.
Enclosed facilities used in indoor farming create optimal growing conditions for farmers to grow a crop from the seed to its harvesting stages in less time and obtain higher yields in each cycle with limited land area. Indoor vertical farming systems provide organic food that is not contaminated with agrochemicals. Indoor vertical farming in particular is growing in popularity because of the increasing consumer demand for pesticide-free and herbicide-free food, as well as the growing requirements to reduce the carbon footprint of traditional agricultural practice.
Using these innovations such as indoor vertical farming to produce biopharmaceuticals in plants is cost-effective, requires less work, is pollution-free, and is easy to produce. Indoor vertical farms are not only beneficial for food production, but also human health.PDF PRESENTATION
