High-tech indoor farms are sprouting up all over North America, and these facilities bare little resemblance to traditional agriculture. Why would a company choose to spend more money and energy to grow plants inside instead of outside? How do these growers position themselves in the market, and what are their primary business drivers? During this web conference, we’ll explore the technical and financial implications of moving farms indoors, the benefits and challenges associated with modernized farming, and the types of programs and services these farmers value.

You’ll learn:

  • How the indoor agriculture market is growing and evolving today
  • The types of technologies and processes used in indoor agriculture facilities
  • When, where, and how customers are using different controlled-environment techniques
  • The energy-use and load-growth implications of indoor agriculture
