📸 Sheikh Mohammed visits world's largest vertical farm in #Dubai

The UAE Vice-President has visited Emirates Crop One (ECO 1) — the world's largest vertical farm, which recently opened in Dubai.

During the tour, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai was briefed about the innovative technologies used in powering the state-of-the-art hydroponic farm.

Developed in a joint venture between Emirates Flight Catering and Crop One Holdings, the $40-million facility is spread over an area of 330,000sqft. The facility, which opened in July, can produce more than 1,000,000 kilograms of high-quality leafy greens annually while requiring 95% less water than conventional agriculture.
