Improving Agricultural Efficiency and Sustainability
The Global Startup Ecosystem Report in its Agtech & New Food Edition starts by emphasizing the urgency of tackling food security focusing on services and technologies that help improve the efficiency and efficacy of agri-food systems:
“A rapidly growing global population, global disparity in access to food, soil degradation, and many other factors have driven innovation in agriculture and food technology for decades, but the COVID-19 pandemic, spiraling fertilizer costs, supply chain disruption, and recent geopolitical events have brought new urgency and mainstream attention to the issue of food security. Combined with increasing awareness of the effects of climate change, we are more aware than ever of the fragility of our food supply chains and need for change in patterns of consumption.
