Top 10 things you need to know about vertical farms
According to the latest research, the world will need 70% more food by 2050.
Add to this:
This all puts an enormous pressure on global food production and raises a question:
How do we grow more food which is also healthy, safe and tasty?
Did you know that…
recent failures of the supply chain
rising temperature and more frequent droughts
ongoing climate change
need less space
by stacking crops vertically

Vertical farms offer a viable solution
Rapidly gaining ground around the world, vertical farms are believed to be the next step in food production and an effective alternative to traditional farming:
The UAE will continue to make the right investments in technologies and people to make food production and supply more agile and sustainable.

What makes vertical farms so attractive?
Vertical farms operate 365 days a year regardless of weather conditions. You can grow crops even in the middle of a desert.
Climate-neutral farming
Crops are completely isolated from the outside environment and grow in a hygienic indoor space.
Pesticide-free products
Crops don’t need to travel long distances losing both quality and nutritional value.
Close proximity to local stores
Multiple sensors and an artificial intelligence system monitor and control light, humidity, temperature, growth, and nutrition.
Smart technology
Vertical farms significantly reduce water usage and allow recycling and reusing of soilless substrates.
Fresh and nutrient-rich food is grown locally and delivered quicker to consumers.
Less reliance on exports
To ensure success, here are 10 things that you need to look out for in a vertical farm.
by 2030, with more and more businesses and investors becoming interested in vertical farming.
The industry is expected to grow to

A microclimate
Our advanced technology can differentiate between plant growth stages and create a microclimate most suitable for a particular stage.
At TAIGŪ Project, we offer modular vertical farm solutions.
Industry-leading vertical farms offer modular solutions. There can be many modules in one farm and each of them can recreate a different climate environment. This allows farmers to grow various crops under the same roof.
Vertical farms are equipped with multiple sensors that collect real-time data and feed it into machine learning algorithms. Using these algorithms, the system monitors the microclimate within the farm.

TAIGŪ Project is the only company that can grow a wide range of crops, including:
These crops grow quickly and do not require a large space or many nutrients.
In most vertical farms, farmers can grow a limited number of crops, such as leafy greens, herbs, or tomatoes.
of crops
No soil
This means that farmers don't need to think about erosion, loss of structure, soil degradation, or soil replacement.
Vertical farms are either soilless or use a soil-like substrate rich in nutrients.
It resembles soil in many ways. For example, it absorbs and retains water, has antiseptic properties, and is created from natural substances.
At TAIGŪ Project, we re-created soil by using different nutrients. This substrate doesn’t require replacement and doesn’t have an expiration date.
Using machine learning algorithms, these farms can calculate how much water, light, and nutrition is needed for each plant.
Industry-leading vertical farms offer zero-waste production cycles.
We carefully calibrate the system in the way that crops are provided with exactly the right amount of nutrients and water.
While most farms require a sewer system, TAIGŪ Project’s farms do not produce any waste.
They use eco-friendly materials even for the smallest components, such as screws, bolts, nuts, paint, and different types of food-safe plastic.
Vertical farms create a hygienic space for plants to grow. This reduces the risk of food contamination.
All surfaces that come in contact with plants are hygienic and covered in an antiseptic hypoallergenic silver coating.
At TAIGŪ Project, we apply food-safe paint to all metal components used in our farms.
No need
The farm’s microclimate is managed automatically while farmers can monitor the system on their smartphones.
There’s no need in staff, except for harvesting crops and securing the building.
Vertical farms use machine learning algorithms and do not require human involvement.
for trained staff
Our clients have all important information at their fingertips and if something unexpected happens or they require assistant, we have a dedicated service company that will be in touch with them promptly.
Farmers can decide how many microclimates they need within the farm and experiment with different crops growing in the same building. This helps them scale their business gradually.
Microclimate modules come in different sizes and shapes.
TAIGŪ Project’s modular system is very flexible and allows scalability. Our clients can choose modules in different sizes. Based on their needs, we then create a project that takes into account all requirements.
You can grow crops with TAIGŪ Project in the mountains, in remote villages, in a desert… or even in Antarctica.

To function properly, vertical farms require only three elements:
TAIGŪ Project’s vertical farms are highly autonomous which makes them a perfect solution for remote areas or regions with harsh climate conditions.
Since the farm is completely isolated from the outside environment and there is no soil used, weeds and insects cannot get to the crops.
Vertical farms create a healthy and safe environment for crops to grow.
The microclimate modules used in TAIGŪ Project’s farms are isolated from each other which means that if an outbreak happens in one module, others won’t be affected.
Even if some sort of contamination happens, our clients are protected.
Ideally, they need a full-service company that will help them with any questions and issues, including farm planning and harvesting.
Since vertical farming is still not widespread, if something breaks or doesn’t work as expected, farmers might not know what to do.
We also work together with a service company that regularly inspects equipment for proper maintenance and efficiently deals with malfunctions, troubleshooting, and breakdowns.
Our team is involved in the design and planning stages and helps with technical requirements, delivery, instillation, and testing.
TAIGŪ Project is a full-service vertical farming company. We do not simply sell equipment, we provide each client with individual support and see their project from start to finish.
