Spraying systems for vertical farming
For vertical farming, irrigation control is a delicate matter due to all the electronics involved, such as LED lamps, robots etc. A spraying system for a vertical farm should only spray downwards and not in any way wet above the crops. Ikeuchi has developed a spraying system especially for vertical farms where the space and spraying height is limited.
Efficient use of vertical space is one of the primary benefits of vertical farming. Careful planning of crop layouts, shelving, and lighting systems is essential to maximize the use of available space. The optimal spraying system needs to take all this into consideration.
Vertical farms must prioritize water efficiency, especially in regions with water scarcity. A controlled spraying system will not deliver any more water than necessary and distribute it evenly among the crops.
