Technological developments offer many new opportunities to increase productivity in the agricultural sector. One of the most striking among these possibilities is vertical farming practices, which are becoming increasingly popular today. Vertical agriculture, which stands out as an agricultural production method that will be less affected by factors such as geographical features, climatic conditions and soil structure, can be defined as agricultural production on layers placed in the vertical direction. These layers can be created in any area that allows them to be placed in the vertical direction; for example, it can be lined up on the exterior of a building or placed in pipes inside a warehouse. Vertical farming, which aims to obtain maximum product from a unit area, greatly reduces the need for arable land.
