Vertical Farming

From Murphy Loopo

We are raising funds for our vertical farming innovative. Vertical farming is also referred to as an indoor farming, therefore we will appreciate any assistance and support.

Understanding things at a plant level throughout the entire growth cycle

While data is important for greenhouse growers, for vertical growers it’s vital as leveraging it offers the opportunity for a higher level of response and control of growing outcomes.

“The thing that we advise customers on more than anything is how to interpret their data. At MEAFL, we have an extensive team behind us that understands growing data and part of our role is to continually support and coach our customers on this so they can make the best decisions on what actions to take,”. As an indoor farmer, getting expose to adequate data use helps narrate how plants, fruits and herbs can be carefully studied.

Short Summary

We are Murphy Eco Agricultural Farm Life. Established by Murphy Loopo, who also has more of this vertical farm house in Beijing and Taiwan. We are looking at an establishment that won't only focus on vegetables but botanic plants used in herbal practices.

Vertical Farming or vertical agriculture facilitates viable agricultural production inside buildings, in the metropolitan areas of our cities.  Vertical Farming is therefore a form of urban agriculture, and WE intend to make the best out of every investment made on this project.

What We Need & What You Get

We have applied for a government loan but was denied because the project hasn't passed a startup stage. This was why we decided to raise funds to get the project up and running.

We are hoping to raise a total sum of $3,800,955 for a proper startup.

Funds needed goes into equipment purchases, staff hiring and tutorial for people interested in learning about how vertical farming can improve the climate change and environmental pollution.

Newest findings are used to facilitate sustainable agriculture and the mass production of vegetable products inside of buildings.  Because we are able to stack plantings, we are building vertically.  Every square meter of floor space of vertical farming produces approximately the same amount of vegetable crops as 50 square meters of conventionally worked farm land. A vertical farm is able to use 95% less water, because it is recycled. Because our production is indoors, we need virtually no herbicides and pesticides

The Impact

A vertical farm can be built anywhere and at any time. First examples of successful vertical city farms are now available (Singapore, Sweden, the Netherlands, USA, Japan, China).  These agricultural technologies will be redefining the food industry in the years to come. The vertical farm market is estimated to reach 5.8 billion USD by 2022, with an annual growth rate of 24.8% (2016-2022).

A vertical farm is not only versatile in its use, but also creates new occupational groups and jobs in all of its core areas: In its cultivation, plant supply and technology, during harvest and processing, as well as in sales and catering or the restaurant business. Today’s practical applications already manage inclusive projects successfully.  In addition, there is no limit to the imagination: Public spaces can be rethought and revived for relaxation and collaboration, social interaction takes on a new meaning, and local economic interdependence will be established.

Risks & Challenges

An omnivorous (eating everything) person requires an average of approximately 2300 m2 of cultivation area for his/her nutritional needs. Austria imports more than half of its consumed food stuffs from other countries. Above all, the Asian and African population is growing at an accelerated rate. One thing is going to be very important in the years to come: To ensure the food supply for rapidly growing world populations.  How are we to provide for nine billion people in the year 2050?

Also, the basic resources for plant cultivation are light, water and nutrients. A lack of precipitation often leads to sourcing the needed water from groundwater, lakes or rivers, resulting in the lowering of groundwater levels and the drying up of natural water resources.  The increased demand for agricultural space has led to clearing rain forests by fire all over the world, which then leads to significantly higher production of CO2. Crude oil is still the central energy source for the food sector, fertilizer and transport and thus contributes significantly to climate change.

Other Ways You Can Help

We secure the future of food

Vertical farms preserve our ecosystem in a variety of ways. Because the space is utilized vertically instead of on the ground level, only a fraction of the ground surface is needed compared to what is required for conventional farming. Innovative irrigation systems and lighting methods make food production possible year around – regardless of weather conditions. We are thinking along the lines of circulation systems for materials and resources: Wastewater is to be reused as irrigation water, plant residues are used for heat in the form of biogas. The protection of the building’s shell and new lighting methods make food production possible year around – regardless of weather conditions. This contributes to food security for cities in a significant way.

We are rethinking regional focus

For more than 11,000 years we have produced our food in the same places we consumed them. We want to restore this practice again. Biological, fresh and local products are produced by consumers directly in their cities.  Furthermore, vertical farm products can be prioritized at the site, processed further, packaged, sold and consumed close by. Our relationship to this locally produced and consumed food is holistically regional again at last.
