How to Fuel Food’s Future

October 6, 2022

How digital agriculture can sustainably fuel food’s future.

Our global food system uses significant energy to feed the world, powering everything from essential fertilisers to machinery required for food’s growth and distribution.

Production agriculture has been on an ongoing evolution of optimization towards increased productivity and sustainability. Increasing pressures from climate policy, rising energy prices and inflation have led us to another critical inflection point. While some pressures may alleviate, it’s also now clear that the food system is being dramatically impacted by machines, software and new autonomous tech.

Can this new tech help the food system promote sustainability, while also managing cost pressures? And how can we attract the talent the food system needs to put this tech to work?

Join CityAge and EMILI on October 6 for a look at how digital agriculture can sustainably fuel food’s future.
