The AVF and its Regional Chapter India have partnered with the Horticulture Producers Society India to offer you a two day event focused on Vertical Farming technologies, businesses and case studies.

If you are interested in attending, speaking or sponsoring please contact us.

The AVF’s focus on India is driven by staggering facts that India’s arable land is often contaminated, overused, yields are endangered by droughts or floods. India only has 4% of the worlds sweet water reserves. Three-quarters of the sewage water is not purified, most of the water flowing through urban areas is unsuitable for drinking or fishing. 80% of India’s water resources are used by agriculture. It is estimated that 590 million people will live in Indias urban areas by the year 2030 – they will need to be fed with safe and sustainable resource saving methods. VF is a promising new business field which will create new jobs in cities and will be an important technology for the development of sustainable resilient city concepts. The AVF sees India, with its technological expertise, urban expansion, and existing indoor farming knowledge as a critical player in the global development of sustainable vertical farming.
