Agritech and Sustainability

What is sustainable agriculture? Essentially, it is the ability to produce enough food and commodities to meet present needs without endangering the environment, public health or economic profitability. As the population grows, so does the demand for food and resources, and farmers must find ways to increase production rates while remaining environmentally conscious. If food and commodities are not produced with care, future generations of crops are at risk. The idea behind sustainable farming is to minimize one’s environmental footprint and enforce good stewardship of the land and natural resources.

How population growth affects the need for agritech innovation and sustainability

As the world’s population grows, so does the need for sustainable farming. According to the United Nations’ Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the world’s population is projected to be at 9.7 billion by 2050. Meanwhile, the surface of the Earth is not growing, and therefore, farmers are under enormous pressure to produce successful crops quickly. The good news is, researchers believe that food is not lacking; it is often just poorly managed. There are a number of solutions that improve the way agriculture is managed in order to keep up with the growing demand for food and commodities.
