In this report, Technavio researchers identify the growing focus on reducing the labor costs of farming as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global vertical farming technologies market:
Growing focus on reducing the labor costs of farming
Vertical farming technologies involve fully automated growing systems for plants. These technologies help increase crop yield and reduce labor costs. They minimize manual intervention during farming and reduce unnecessary labor. Manual labor is required only for on-site planting and packaging.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for agricultural equipment research, “One of the main costs of farming is the cost of access. This includes costs incurred by labor for walking, riding scissor lifts, retrieving growing channels and checking the crops. The use of vertical farming technologies such as zip racks and stacked NFT helps to reduce the cost of access, thereby increasing farming efficiencies. For instance, the ergonomic design of ZipGrow can reduce poor harvest and labor costs by up to 60%.”
