Aeroponic vertical farming in Newark, New Jersey

Watch more with these video collections:

Inside of a former laser tag area in Newark, New Jersey, Aerofarms is growing 250 kinds of leafy greens in huge air and mist-driven vertical farm. This Seeker Stories video shows how their aeroponic technology works:

AeroFarms’ crops are grown entirely indoors using a reusable cloth medium made from recycled plastics. In the absence of sun exposure, the company uses LED lights that expose plants to only certain types of spectrum. AeroFarms claims it uses 95% less water than a traditional farm thanks to its specially designed root misting system. And it is now building out a new 70,000 square foot facility in a former steel mill. Once completed, it’s expected to grow 2 million pounds of greens per year, making it the largest indoor vertical farm in the world.
