Precision Farming: Harnessing Technology to Feed the World

26 SEP 2016

As the population continues to grow without a comparable increase in farmable land, the world has once again reached a tipping point in its long-term food supply problem. The next leg of food production growth will come from greater precision in agriculture, says Goldman Sachs Research's Jerry Revich, with advances in hardware, software and computing power converging with technologies like self-driving tractors and drones to help farmers feed humanity's next century.

We’re simply talking about technologies that are needed to get us to adequate food supply by 2050.
