AGTECH: Will technology feed and save us?

More than 9 billion. This is how many people will live on earth by 2050 and how many humans will need to be fed.

The challenge ahead of us is tremendous. Food production will have to increase by 70 percent in order to prevent massive famine. At the same time, humanity will have to learn to produce more with less. It’s already taking eighteen months to regenerate the resources that we consume in one year and at this rate, in 2030, one earth won’t be enough to support us.

There is no magic solution to this challenge unfortunately. We will have to waste less and produce more. The only question is: how ?

Technology is one of the possible answers. It is not THE only answer.

This report written by L'Atelier BNP Paribas will allow you to:

  • Understand the new trends occurring in AgTech and the impact of data in agriculture 
  • Have an overview of the main actors in that fielddata in agriculture
  • Forecast the impact of this trend in other sectors
