Abstract
The indoor vertical farming industry is growing globally. The proponents for acceptance of indoor vertical farming by organic certifying bodies say producers follow the current guidelines and should receive certification. Opponents believe the lack of a soil environment and the natural light that accompanies it makes indoor vertical farming outside the spirit of the organic guidelines. An alternative to certification could be to create new classifications for indoor vertical farms.
