Therefore, various new technologies have been adopted for farming such as vertical farming, sky farming and horizontal farming among others. Vertical farming can be defined as production of crops through vertical stacked layers.

Water conservation, high demand for food, increasing adoption of new technologies, implementation of artificial lights, elimination of herbicides and pesticides, continuous crop production and recycling are the factors contributing to the growth of the vertical farming market.

Various government programs have been implemented to promote vertical farming worldwide. For instance, USDA Specialty Crop Grant program helps in funding on specialty crops, USDA Value-Added Producer Grant helps in funding on raw products such as basil and lettuce. Also, in May 2015, Green Spirit Farms in Detroit announced various financial programs for vertical farming.
