With more and more mouths to feed in densely built-up areas, urban farming is a solution for nearby production of fresh and healthy foods. Singapore is a front runner. In the past two years the number of indoor farms has more than quadrupled to 26.

This session aims to generate insights in how these farms select technologies and propagation materials, the way they go about business management and indoor growing challenges, as well as in the sustainability aspect of indoor & urban farming in the city of Singapore. The session will be on 23 August at AMBER 1 from 10:30-12:00 hrs.)
