"US: Marapharm to include "vertical plus" farming"

Marapharm announces that it's modifying its farming model to include some farming styles which originated from conventional vertical farming. Marapharm's farming model is called "vertical plus".
"While farming in a vertical dimension, every cubic inch contributes to the final yield of flower as opposed to the more conventional linear oriented marijuana gardens, which are really taking more of a square foot approach. The difference is that a whole other dimension is being contributed to the total harvest. Effectively the cultivation space increases by several times and of course then the product and profit yields increase significantly. We refer to our vertical farming as 'vertical plus' because while there are minor similarities with conventional vertical farming the system we will use is a remarkable advance in farming," said Linda Sampson, Marapharm CEO.

"In addition to increased yields and quality the vertical plus system saves us a lot of money which otherwise would have been spent on construction. Building plans are being modified to accommodate vertical plus growing for the two 5000' square foot starter buildings and the entire 360,000 square foot building all on the 7 acres owned by Marapharm located in Apex Industrial Park, Las Vegas, Nevada. Construction drawings of the 30,000 square foot building located in Washington State are also being modified and changes will include the deletion of a proposed mezzanine; all mezzanines in all buildings will be eliminated. And there will be no delays in construction or growing with the addition of the vertical plus farming," added Linda Sampson, Marapharm CEO.
