Indoor farming and the year 2017

A company that offer software that helps indoor farmers to manage their production, brings every year a report about indoor farming and the data are interesting and we bring you a summary about aquaponics.

The report evaluates over 150 responses from growers around the world, but most of the responses (93 %) are from northern America (USA, Canada).

The most popular system of growing is Hydroponics (49 %) and the Aquaponics is on the third place with 15 %.

Almost half (47 %) of respondents grows crops in the greenhouse and 30 % grows crops in indoor vertical farm.

Most respondents (61 %) are growers with a small farm. Small farm is a farm that have the area lower than 930 m2 (10.000 ft2).

The most popular crop is leafy green. The tomatoes grows 16 % of growers and then are herbs (11 %), flowers (10 %) and microgreens (6 %).

The most profitable system appeared aquaponics, that beats the hydroponics by 2 %. After the hydroponics on the same values are aeroponics and soil-based growing. As the least profitable seems the combination of Aquaponics & Hydroponics & Soil, where 75 % of the subjects using this type of growing is unprofitable.
