GLOBAL CONNECT

The world’s population is predicted to be 9.8 billion by 2050 so food and agriculture are going to be increasingly important as we address food supply and security and combat food contamination and waste. Supporting the world’s farmers is also a global imperative, as 90% of farms worldwide are small farms of about 2 hectares and consistently fight insolvency – yet, these small farms are producing the majority of food for human consumption worldwide. To address the global population’s food supply, the world will have to increase its food production by 50%. There are numerous impactful applications of advanced technology in food and ag tech. Some of the applications include: Precision Agriculture Big data and predictive analytics and AI to improve yields and productivity IoT sensors to detect soil condition real-time and smart irrigation Drones for early disease detection in crops Blockchain for trust, transparency and equity in food distribution Join us in this exciting panel of global industry experts and companies from LatAm, Europe, Africa, Asia and the US that are focused on positively impacting food and agriculture for the coming decades.
