Coltivare la soia in vertical farming: perorrere sentieri inesplorati

Our food systems are in trouble, this we know. We also know that we need and want to create sustainable and resilient food systems. Vertical Farming has arisen as one solution, one tool in the box, to help achieve this. Up to now, vertical farming has been a largely urban phenomenon, centred on freshness and short supply chains, and growing mostly leafy greens. We wanted to know if it was possible for vertical farming to grow other plants, and so to address other challenges in the food system. In this presentation, Mark Horler will explain why soy was chosen; the damage done by soy farming and how vertical farming can help to mitigate several social and environmental issues at once. We will also show how soy vertical farming could offer benefit to both the wider food industry and sustainability movement.
