Agrilyst has released their third annual State of Indoor Farming Survey. This survey will give Agrilyst and growers insight on emerging trends and challenges in the greenhouse and vertical farming industries.
Last year, Agrilyst received over 150 responses from indoor farmers for the 2017 State of Indoor Farming report. The report shared insight on the benefits and challenges for growers. According to the report, 25% of growers responded that their biggest challenge is capital - from access to working capital to expansion capital to cost of production. Even though they faced these challenges, 51% of growers reported operating profitably.
Allison Kopf, CEO of Agrilyst said, "this year we are digging even further into the costs of operating an indoor farm. We hope that the report will give everyone insight on the industry and help new growers get up and running faster."
More and better data collected means more insights for growers. Growers can participate in the 2018 State of Indoor Farming survey here. The survey takes approximately 25 minutes to complete.
