Sustaining a growing population

The Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) has released a report on the state of food and agriculture including an outlook on next decades. The risk of hunger and poverty in the World is increasing due to a growing population and the effects of climate change. At a phenomenal rate, millions of people will need more food from existing agricultural supplies in the next decades.

The report also outlines the relevance of adopting measures to limit the impact of agriculture in climate change in order to mitigate the risks of hunger and poverty. Among the measures to be adopted, Precision Ag is presented as a vehicle to decrease such risk by almost 8%. The introduction and use of new technologies that help increasing yield and preserving water fully resonates with divirod's mission.
