04. WHY ARE
SOME FARMS
NOT PROFITABILITY?

Vertical Farms are increasing in popularity but
are often not profitable

– Labor – biggest cost factor after energy

– Multilayer farm with 5m & more in height – logistics issue

– Today – scissor lifts + human labor

– Inefficient and dangerous – breaks profitability
