Business Insider reports that vertical farming start-up Oasis Biotech has achieved a significantly reduced environmental cost and accelerated growth process for their produce, and their success in Las Vegas may mean a similar set-up in every major city.
The facility is home to Oasis Biotech, a startup that transformed a vacant Las Vegas industrial property into a center for hydroponic farming, a process of growing plants without soil to conserve water and speed up the maturation process. The technique has become quite popular in recent years as farmers look for ways to deliver food year-round, within hours of harvesting their crops.
Though several vertical-farming companies have failed in recent years, Oasis Biotech is leveraging the resources of Las Vegas, a city known for its high-end cuisine and celebrity restaurants.
