Farmers are under continuous pressure to produce more food, faster. Environmental sustainability in agriculture is an equally important topic to discuss in parallel with mass food production. When food is grown sustainably, it’s safe and healthy for both consumers and Mother Earth. Let’s look at some of the most innovative futuristic farming methods.
