According the UN Food and Agricultural Organisation FAO, the global population will reach 8 billion people by 2025. If we add changing diets in Asia, the need for potable water and climate change to the equation, than we face one of the most important challenges in the upcoming decades for planet Earth. In order to keep up the pace, food production will have to increase with 70% by 2050. Our world is simply not big enough to feed all mouths in a sustainable way. Agri-food needs more than just precision alone … it needs smartness on top.
