Get inspired by David Rosenberg, CEO and Co-Founder of AeroFarms, the world’s leader in mass-scale vertical indoor farming!
Rosenberg set out to reinvent one of the most basic aspects of food production: farming. AeroFarms has grown 800 species of plants indoors and can grow them 365 days a year without sun or soil, achieving yields 130 times greater than conventional farming. His system uses 95 percent less water than field farming and no pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides.
Rosenberg’s adoption of cutting-edge technology has been a cornerstone of AeroFarms, which set up its first indoor vertical farms in abandoned warehouses in Newark. He employs plant biologists, microbiologists, geneticists, systems engineers, and data scientists.
AeroFarms’ innovations in indoor vertical farming have improved not just plant yields but also taste, texture, nutritional density, and shelf life.
Rosenberg was honored at LSC’s Genius of New Jersey event on Dec. 2, 2019. Check out this video highlighting the amazing work of AeroFarms:
