What collaboration and investment can scale solutions for famers, the food industry, consumers and the environment?

As the planet’s population increases, and natural resources are put under ever-more pressure, the agriculture industry faces the central challenge of how to grow more crops efficiently and sustainably.

More money went into funding agricultural technology startups in 2017 than the previous two years combined.

What are other solutions that will scale sustainable solutions for feeding future generations?
