The world of agritech is changing every day. Check out our bi-weekly round-up to stay in-the-know on the evolving world that is agriculture technology.
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.
