How population growth affects the need for agritech innovation and sustainability

As the world’s population grows, so does the need for sustainable farming. According to the United Nations’ Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the world’s population is projected to be at 9.7 billion by 2050. Meanwhile, the surface of the Earth is not growing, and therefore, farmers are under enormous pressure to produce successful crops quickly. The good news is, researchers believe that food is not lacking; it is often just poorly managed. There are a number of solutions that improve the way agriculture is managed in order to keep up with the growing demand for food and commodities.
