© 2021 IEEE.Urban agriculture/farming is a promising solution for cities, yet it cannot exist horizontally in urban areas, so the vertical farming (VF) approach is suggested. VF produces food and medicine in vertically stacked layers, vertically inclined surfaces, and/or integrated into other structures. Accordingly, this paper aims to present a novel ELICIT MOORA method for VF technology assessment. The MOORA model, which supplies fast and easy decision-making environments to practitioners, is modified to emphasize its benefits with linguistic variables. Extended Comparative Linguistic Expressions with Symbolic Translation (ELICIT) model is suggested to extend the MOORA thanks to its several advantages such as interpretability of the results, providing an assessment environment closer to the way of human thinking. Moreover, a case study about an organic farm from Turkey is presented with the comparative results and discussions.
