Shining out as an agricultural production method that can be less affected by factors such as geographical features, climate conditions, and soil structure, vertical farming can be defined as a type of agricultural production performed on layers that are placed vertically. These layers can be built in any area that allows them to be organised in vertical direction – for instance, they can be arrayed on the exterior of a building or placed on pipes inside a warehouse. Vertical farming, which aims to attain maximum efficiency per unit area, considerably decreases the need for arable land.

Smart devices and systems which operate in synchronisation are becoming prominent among the rapidly growing greenhouse technologies.
