What kinds of irrigation does a vertical farm use?

    Vertical farming attempts to grow in the most efficient way possible. Vertical farms use irrigation systems called hydroponics. A hydroponics system entails the plants being grown in mineral nutrients water solutions instead of in soil. This leads to clean absorption and no soil waste.
