Good question, Spencer. Although vertical farming has not actually been utilized yet, there are two main potential benefits. One, all the land that would otherwise have been used for farming could be left to grow, which would increase the amount of habitat for animals, and increase the amount of forests that absorb carbon dioxide. Another reason vertical farming may be a good thing is because it would produce food year round at a constant rate, and not be dependent on the weather.
There have been arguments to why it is not so good, too. Mostly, vertical farming is criticized for how much electricity it would take to operate. I guess we will just have to wait and see how well vertical farming works!
Hope this helps!
