Key takeaways

  • The global population, which is expected to grow by an additional ~2 billion people by 2050, will require the global agriculture industry to produce more food in the next 3-4 decades than was produced in the last 8,000 years (source: World Wildlife Foundation).
  • Meanwhile, the ramifications of climate change — from rising temperatures, more frequent droughts, declining soil quality, crop damage from disasters, and surging pest populations — are profound.
  • We discuss several focus areas of sustainability in agriculture, and break down how agriculture technology (AgTech) solutions can play a pivotal role in enhancing efficiency, addressing pain points, and reducing the environmental footprint within the agricultural sector.
