The staff of the Department of Plant Science of the faculty of Agriculture of DTU (Mulatu Kassa, Firnus Adugnaw, and Muluken Yayeh) presented a vertical farming system which can be accomplished using disposed plastic bottles within a very limited space to the audiences of the launching ceremony.
According to Mr. Mulatu Kassa, vertical farming is an essential system that can be carried out within a limited space and minimum effort and water supply, which in fact is important for urbanites and women who spend most of their time at home. The University has plans to scale up the experience after properly investigating the process and taking corrective measures as Mr. Mulatu explained further.
