Software solutions provider Agrilyst has launched their third annual State of Indoor Farming Survey.

This survey will give Agrilyst and growers insight on emerging trends and challenges in the greenhouse and vertical farming industries.

Last year, Agrilyst received over 150 responses from indoor farmers in the US. The 2017 report shared insight on the benefits and challenges for growers. According to the report, 25 per cent of growers said that their biggest challenge was capital – from access to working capital and expansion capital to cost of production. Even though they faced these challenges, 51 per cent of growers reported operating profitably.

Allison Kopf, CEO of Agrilyst said, “this year we are digging even further into the costs of operating an indoor farm. We hope that the report will give everyone insight on the industry and help new growers get up and running faster.” The company aims to expand their survey participants to growers in Canada.

More data collected means better insights for growers. Growers can participate in the 2018 State of Indoor Farming survey here. The survey takes approximately 25 minutes to complete.

Agrilyst provides software solutions to greenhouse and vertical farming operations, enabling them to track and analyze farm data in one place. They have customers in more than 10 countries.
