Could Adoption of AgTech for Rural Farms Solve the World Hunger Crisis?

Interwoven Crises: Food, Farm and Planet

Global Food Insecurity

Unsustainable Farming Practices

  • Land degradation, caused by over clearing, poor irrigation, monoculture crop strategies, topsoil erosion
  • Groundwater depletion, caused by inefficient irrigation systems
  • Soil and water contamination, caused by fertilizers, pesticides and other chemicals
  • Loss of ecosystem, caused by human encroachment, deforestation and toxic runoff

Climate Change

  • Water shortages, droughts and floods
  • Shifts in planting and harvesting seasons
  • Pest- and disease-related crop losses
  • Unpredictable weather and extreme temperatures
  • Reduced nutritional value (due to higher CO2 levels)
