An insight into the challenges facing vertical farms

Max Armstrong continues his discussion about the challenges facing vertical farms. Max shares insight from a Pennsylvania State University business professor, Eric Stein, head of the non-profit Center for Indoor Agriculture. The electric bill for lighting alone can already be very expensive. Stein shares insights on the costs of the process, and while renewable energy might help, solar panels can't cover the full price. Max offers further insight into the tech involved with these farms and the added costs.

Max Armstrong's Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
