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

At 14’000S price difference the robot pays back after 23’000 unit handlings =>

1 year and 4 months

* The bigger the farm and the higher the hourly wage, the faster ATAT pays off
