A number of global trends are influencing food security, poverty, and the overall sustainability of food and agricultural systems. The report addresses the four main developments placing pressure on agriculture to meeting the demands of the future:
Demographics, Scarcity of natural resources, Climate change, and Food waste.
The report states that, although demand is continuously growing, by 2050 we will need to produce 70 percent more food. To meet these challenges will require a concerted effort by governments, investors, and innovative agricultural technologies. Agriculture will no longer depend on applying rain water, fertilizers, and pesticides uniformly across entire fields. Instead, farmers will use the minimum quantities required and target very specific areas. The report further states that, farms and agricultural operations will have to be run very differently, primarily due to advancements in technology such as sensors, devices, machines, and information technology. That why Streamlan Solutions(EA) LTD got you sorted in Future agriculture.
Renewable energy and farming are a winning combination. Wind, solar, and biomass energy can be harvested forever, providing farmers with a long-term source of income. Renewable energy (environmentally friendly) can be used on the farm to replace other fuels or sold as a “cash crop.” The amount of energy from the sun that reaches Earth each day is enormous. All the energy stored in Earth’s reserves of coal, oil,and natural gas is equal to the energy from only 20 days of sunshine.
While desert get more sun than other parts, most areas receive enough sunshine to make solar energy practical. Solar energy can be used in agriculture in a number of ways, saving money, increasing self-reliance, and reducing pollution. Solar energy can cut a farm’s electricity and heating bills. Solar heat collectors can be used to dry crops and warm homes, livestock buildings, and greenhouses. Solar water heaters can provide hot water for dairy operations, pen cleaning, and homes.
Photovoltaics (solar electric panels) can power farm operations and remote water pumps, lights, and electric fences. Buildings and barns can be renovated to capture natural daylight, instead of using electric lights. Solar power is often less expensive than extending power lines.
