Correct Answer: C
Solution :[c] Vertical farming as a component of urban agriculture is the practice of producing food in vertically stacked layers, vertically inclined surfaces and/or integrated in other structures. The modem idea of vertical farming uses controlled environment agriculture (CEA) technology, where all environmental factors can be controlled. These facilities utilize artificial control of light, environmental control (humidity, temperature, gases,..) and fertigation. Some vertical farms use techniques similar to glass houses, where natural sunlight can be augmented with artificial lighting and metal reflectors.
