What Is It
Emirates Flight Catering and Crop One are coming up with a huge vertical farm in Dubai which is going to spread across a 130,000-square-foot indoor farm that will be capable of producing around 6000 pounds of herbs and greens every single day. The construction for the project is expected to start in November 2018 and is expected to start delivering from December 2019 to Emirates Flight Catering’s customers which includes 25 airport lounges and 105 flights.

The crops are grown in temperature-controlled rooms and are controlled according to the type of crop. The LEDs will have minimal natural sunlight to grow crops in the best health. To monitor the health of the crops in real time, sensors will be attached to the tray. This new vertical farm will become the world’s largest vertical farm beating the current Aero Farm in Newark, New Jersey.
