Creating future farming with technology for food resilience
The world is facing a dire situation. By 2050, the population is expected to reach an unprecedented 9.7 billion, while the food demand is expected to double.

The world is facing many challenges, including climate change, which is causing decreased farming output and rising hunger worldwide.
