Traditional vs Alternative Farming

 

Traditonal

Farming facilities take up about 230-1,500 acres of land and in total, researchers found that about 11% of the world's land surface is used for crop production.

It is estimated that 5.2 billion pounds of pesticides are used world wide and out of the 5.2 billion pounds,

80% of the used pesticides are used in

US farms.

Traditional farming uses about 2,000 gallons of water a day which is about 730,000 gallons of water

a year.

Indoors

A New Jersey based company with nine indoor farms, AeroFarms, claims to produce 130 times the amount of produce that is produced in a acre of land.  

Pesticides are not used in indoor farms due to the plants being indoors and not exposed to the environment, less soil is being used, and the crops are being monitored frequently.

An Indoor farming company known as AeroFarms saves water by using their indoor facilities and claims they use 95% less water than a typical outdoor farm.
