"Indoor farming, also known as vertical farming or controlled environment agriculture (CEA), is a growing trend in Brazil. With its vast land area and diverse climatic conditions, Brazil offers unique opportunities for indoor farming to supplement traditional agricultural practices.Vertical farms use vertical stacking systems to grow crops in a controlled environment, typically in urban settings. These farms utilize artificial lighting, hydroponics, and aeroponics techniques to cultivate crops without soil. They can be established in buildings, warehouses, or repurposed structures. Indoor farming allows for precise control over environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, light, and CO2 levels. This control enables year-round production and minimizes the impact of external factors like extreme weather events. Brazil faces water scarcity in some regions, and indoor farming methods like hydroponics and aeroponics can significantly reduce water usage compared to traditional agriculture. These methods circulate water through the system, minimizing waste and optimizing water efficiency. Indoor farming is particularly relevant in urban areas where land availability is limited. It allows for localized food production, reducing transportation distances and ensuring fresh produce is readily available to urban populations. Indoor farming in Brazil includes a wide range of crops, including leafy greens, herbs, microgreens, strawberries, tomatoes, and more. The controlled environment can be tailored to specific crop requirements, enabling the cultivation of a variety of plants throughout the year. Indoor farming often integrates advanced technologies like artificial intelligence, IoT (Internet of Things), and data analytics to monitor and optimize crop growth. These technologies enable real-time monitoring, precise nutrient delivery, and automation of various processes. While indoor farming is still relatively nascent in Brazil, it is gaining attention and investment as a promising approach to food production. It offers opportunities to increase local food production, enhance food security, and mitigate the challenges posed by Brazil's diverse climatic conditions and land availability. According to Bonafide Research’s report titled ""Brazil Indoor Farming Market Overview, 2027,"" the indoor farming market in Brazil is expected to grow rapidly over the forecast period. Indoor farming is a method of growing fresh vegetables and other plants that uses a variety of facilities such as vertical farming, indoor greenhouses, and others. Vertical farms are plants that are piled on levels and are frequently integrated into other structures such as shipping containers, skyscrapers, or warehouses. Vertical indoor farms can produce more than traditional farms. Greenhouses have been the workhorse of indoor gardeners, particularly in the production of flowers and decorative plants. Modern high-tech designs were pioneered in the Netherlands and have since spread around the world. Several instances of these farms may be found throughout the United States, with the largest spanning hundreds of acres. Greenhouse indoor farming is one of the oldest techniques of indoor farming and has the largest market share in Brazil. Vertical indoor farming is a new approach to the indoor farming industry, and it is growing in the country with a higher growth rate. Indoor farming uses fully enclosed and opaque rooms with artificial lighting to grow crops and consists of systems such as hydroponics, aeroponics, aquaponics, soil-based, and hybrids. Indoor farming recirculates and reuses water, using an average of 95% less water to cultivate the same crops as outdoor farming. When plants or crops are produced in vertical greenhouses, the transpiration process occurs, allowing farmers to reuse the water for irrigation.

Soil-based indoor farming has the highest market share in the Brazil. Hydroponic plants produce more fruits and vegetables because they are more tightly packed together in a hydroponic system than the amount of land required to cultivate the same number of plants. Hydroponics increases plant yields. A growth medium is used in some hydroponic systems to support the plant roots and enable more effective water absorption into the root structure. Plants may grow practically anywhere in an indoor hydroponic system all year. Hydroponic systems are available in a number of forms, including vertical stacking systems that take up little space. Hydroponic systems are very successful techniques, utilised in a variety of agricultural fields as well as in natural disasters. However, this system requires fewer personnel, but it is still costly and complicated, despite its great output. Consumers are more health-concerned and prefer veggies that are free of residue. The Brazil hydroponics market share is rising exponentially in the indoor farming market. The aeroponics technology of indoor farming improves nutrient absorption while exerting less stress on the plant, resulting in better overall produce. Aeroponic plants have more nutritional content while also having superior colors, texture, and taste. Aeroponics, when compared to other controlled environment agriculture systems such as hydroponics and aquaponics, has the added benefit of lower water consumption and greater yields. Aeroponics' lightweight trays also make it easy to stack the grow system and grow vertically. Aeroponics technology is the fastest growing technology in the Brazil. Covid-19 impact: Traditional farming was hit hard during the pandemic due to lockdowns, border closures, quarantines, and supply chain disruptions. This limited access to fresh agricultural produce paved the way for indoor farming. In fact, the pandemic pushed the market demand for indoor farming as the populace was already experiencing high levels of food insecurity. During the pandemic's early stages of spread, the agriculture sector encountered difficulties. There were severe labour shortages on farms; some farmers lost their window of opportunity to harvest seasonal crops; agricultural product prices were plummeting; and logistics were disrupted. All this in spite of the fact that agriculture didn’t face a harsh shut down as it was under essential services that were exempted. The development of indoor farming can also help in addressing all aspects of various food security concerns. Increased health awareness and the consumption of food free of residues have made it possible to use cutting-edge methods, such as indoor farming. In order to have food that is pest-free, people are cultivating the essential crops on a modest scale in their own homes, which has increased productivity.
