GMO Skyfarm

As a response to climate change’s impact on agriculture, GMO Skyfarm 2050 aims to accommodate research and development programmes such as gene-editing of crops and indoor urban farming.

The demand in crops is expected to rise until 2050. With the scenarios of land scarcity, unpredictable weather and low crop yields, food security in the future is a concern. Agriculture technology will help to tackle this problem, as well as to reduce carbon footprint and mitigate climate change. Thus, this project aims to support genetically modified food production by using urban indoor farming methods.
