Ultimation Industries LLC created a new infographic named “How to optimize vertical farming", which highlights the benefits of vertical farming and ways to maximize the production of an indoor farming system. Ultimation has designed, manufactured and installed conveyor systems for over 30 years in the industry.
“Conveyors are essential to vertical farming because they can make use of all the available vertical space of a facility and can move plants through automated systems as they grow,” said Richard Canny, president, Ultimation Industries LLC. “How to optimize vertical farming is the challenge that the industry faces as it scales up.”
