It is a gigantic 330,000 square feet and is close to Al Maktoum International Airport.
In Dubai, “firsts” of their kind frequently occur.
With the Burj Khalifa’s 828-meter height, the city is home to the tallest skyscraper in the world. Aura Sky pool is also the world’s highest 360-degree infinity pool, while Deep Dive Dubai is home to the world’s deepest pool.
The largest vertical farm in the world, which will yearly save more than 250 million liters of water and produce over one million kilograms of pesticide-free vegetables, is the latest achievement to be added to the long list of honors.
The massive 330,000 square foot hydroponic farm, known as Bustanica, is the first vertical farm for Emirates Crop One, a partnership between Crop One and Emirates Flight Catering (EKFC).
The vertical farm, which will be situated at Dubai World Central close to Al Maktoum International Airport, is anticipated to produce more than 1,000,000 kilos of premium leafy greens annually. The approach is more environmentally friendly than conventional farming methods because it doesn’t require soil and only uses a little quantity of water for the crops. If you fly with Emirates, you’ll be eating greens from Bustanica.
From July, expect to see lettuces, arugula, mixed salad greens, and spinach onboard aircraft. Soon, it is anticipated, Bustanica vegetables will be available for purchase in city-based stores.
Dubai is seeing a rise in vertical farming.
A vertical farm was built earlier this year thanks to a collaboration between Green Container Advanced Farming (GCAF) and the Ritz-Carlton Dubai near JBR.
Additionally, demonstrating its commitment to sustainability, Radisson Blu Dubai Deira Creek includes a vertical farm and other cutting-edge technology.
