Innovation, the key for bridging R&D with impact at scale
The need to innovate in agriculture is more urgent than ever. Rising populations will require 60% more food by 2050. Increasing urbanization in Africa and Asia and the impacts of climate change demand we produce this food with fewer inputs. While much of the world struggles with the threat of food insecurity, the cost of nutritious foods in the developing world far exceeds that paid in industrialized nations. At the same time, we are running out of time to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, as in many countries we are just nine harvests away from 2030.
