Container Farming in Challenging Climates & Remote Regions [WEBINAR]
By Cultivatd - Indoor Farming Made Easy
Encouraging higher agricultural productivity to deliver an adequate and consistent supply of food, feed, ﬁber, and fodder for a growing human and livestock population is a significant challenge for agricultural production systems in arid and semi-arid regions. To meet the diverse agricultural needs of a growing worldwide population, it is necessary to discover or develop appropriate techniques for agriculture production in every region of the world.
Arid lands comprise the most widespread terrestrial biome on Earth and are home to over 20% of the world's population.
Engineered to overcome challenges experienced by traditional agriculture production - such as extreme weather conditions, pests, short growing seasons, and environmental limitations, container farms hold the potential to grow food in regions where traditional farming is impossible; such as Arctic, desert, and urban environments.
We’ve assembled a panel of industry experts to discuss the advantages of container farming and how container farms, as a dependable Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) solution, can address and overcome the challenges presented by uncooperative climates and distant, isolated regions.
