The Dutch have a long history in greenhouse horticulture and have recently been involved in vertical farming. In the presentation a comparison will be made between greenhouses and vertical farms. The presentation includes an overview of the systems, how the systems manage the climate around the plants and how this affects yield and costs.
The lecture was organised as a part of the Urban Greenhouse Challenge: Reforest
initiated by Tomsk Polytechnic University (as a follow-up to earlier Greenhouse Challenges organised by Wageningen University & Research in the Netherlands).
