With 10 billion mouths to feed by 2050 global demand for food is set to increase rapidly. This places many pressures on existing farming and logistical resources as well as the natural world – of which we are an important part. The farming sector often comes in for criticism; pesticides have been linked to declining bee populations; deforestation and habitat loss are connected to both climate change and ecological collapse. But it’s not all bad news. There are many farmers and technologists working with nature to do the right things, there are thousands of scientists and entrepreneurs inventing technological solutions that can help meet the many challenges of feeding humanity across the coming decades.
This website, Farming Technology Today, exists to present the latest farming technology news be that agriculture or livestock related. We present regular sustainable solutions to our global audience of readers ranging from farmers and academics to key decision makers in the areas of farming, food production, machinery, engineering and financial services.
I very much hope that you find our content a regular source of interest and inspiration.
