In order to combat the adverse changes in our climate and keep up with the rising demand for food production, we need to take a new approach to agriculture.
Research from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) found that feed production for livestock consumes 26 percent Earth’s ice-free land, modern-day agriculture practices currently use 13 billion hectares (32.1 billion acres) of destroyed forest for pastures or croplands.
The future of agriculture and food production will need technology to use fewer resources, keep up with the rapid increase in population and the change in our climate.
Sheda has been working with innovators in agriculture to build vertical farms that will require less forest land, design and develop solutions using IoT sensors to monitor soil and crop health for efficient food production. Leveraging artificial Intelligence (A.I) we use the data collected from these devices to make better decisions, helping create a sustainable food future for all of us.
