    As of currently, one of the major disadvantages of vertical farms is the cost, however with more research and investment the price for such technology will likely go down. Another downside is the limited variety of crops that will take root and produce food in the controlled and limited environment that is the vertical farm. Finally, a there is a major distrust issue in using black water (sewage) to fertilize the crops; it raises questions of sanitation and contamination of the food produced. While these reasons may deter some people, there are a number of upsides to vertical farming which keep researchers focused on improving the technology.
