How to control the temperature of a saffron farm?

The AVF recently finished its saffron R&D project. Saffron is a very labor-intensive crop, and, moreover, highly dependent on the weather, meaning there is no guarantee of a steady yield. 

“It is hard work to harvest the flowers out in the field, and fewer and fewer workers want to do it. Growing the crops indoors, in vertical farms, could be a game-changer. We still have to wait for the final data, but I think this could be the beginning of such proper margin products entering the vertical farming industry," Christine Zimmermann stated in the recently published article. 

In the video below, Ardalan Ghilavizadeh, head researcher on the project, will explain how to control the temperature of a saffron farm.
