Food safety has become the driving force that lead to a surge of interest in growing green leafy vegetables in greenhouses. It seems fast-expanding and futuristic. Produce from indoor farming also allows consumer to enjoy healthy eating with a peace of mind about food safety. Indoor farming system utilises small space, less water and hinders insects from attacking the plants. Crops are grown using hydroponic methods in a controlled light, humidity, and temperature environment. As such, the crops may vulnerable to microbial contamination in the closed hydroponic system. Testing is useful to verify the nutritional value and risk of microbiological contamination in fresh fruits and vegetables.
