Diversified Product Range: The combination of indoor and outdoor production methods provides opportunities for diversification in product offerings. Indoor production systems like hydroponics or vertical farming allow for specialty tomato varieties or niche products. Outdoor production can cater to conventional or large-scale production, providing a wider range of options to meet market demands.
Reduced Seasonal Limitations: Outdoor production of tomatoes is often constrained by seasonal variations, weather-related challenges, and limited growing periods. By integrating indoor production, growers can overcome these limitations and extend their production capabilities beyond traditional seasons. This leads to a more consistent supply of tomatoes and reduces dependence on specific growing regions.
