Vertical Farming Facility Installs Efficient Horticultural LED Lighting

A newly opened state-of-the-art vertical farming research facility in the UK uses energy-efficient horticultural lighting to boost plant growth. The Vertical Farming Development Facility in Selby, North Yorkshire, has four tiers of cropping racks lit by Arize LED lighting.

This “farm of the future” receives support from the government agency Innovate UK.
