Research and Development

Liberty Produce partnered with the UK AgTech centre Crop Health And Protection to develop and build a cutting-edge vertical farming R&D facility based at the world-renowned James Hutton Institute. The Future Farming Hub facility offers testing, research development and integration capabilities in a total controlled environment agriculture (TCEA) commercial demonstrator system.

Future Farming Hub School

The Future Farming Hub is developing a full residential course in vertical farming for those new to the industry. In response to increasing global demand for indoor farmers, researchers and future entrepreneurs in this relatively nascent field, this introductory training course into vertical farming will include various in-depth and practical sessions, covering what you need to know before embarking into a VF venture.

 

With sessions crossing academic and practical classes, topics covered will include: the structure and function of a vertical farm; plant physiology; lighting systems; nutrient solutions; new technology developments in the field; and business case studies of large scale and smaller vertical farms with a focus on business plan development. Sessions will be delivered by a combination of our in-house experts and external guest academic/industry specialists.

 

The course includes access to and hands on experience within the Future Farming Hub research facility to give students the chance to experience a functioning farm in action.
