Past Present Future
For 10,000 years agriculture was sustainable. Productivity was low, but the population was small (<2 billion) and resources were plentiful. The 20th century brought new technologies and dramatic increases in agricultural production, as the population expanded to 7 billion. Today's high productivity agriculture depends on massive inputs of non-renewable energy, water and chemicals. This is not sustainable.

 
 
 
Over the next 3 decades the Earth's population will increase to 9 BILLION.

 
Billions will adopt inefficient meat-based diets. New industrial crops like biofuels will compete for ever more limited resources. Agricultural yields must be doubled or demand will continue to exceed production, driving prices higher. Economic and geo-political instabilities will increase.

 
We need to fix this. It won’t be easy.

Agricultural yields must be doubled or demand will continue to exceed production.

The Project

Food 3.0 & What We're Doing

Our planet desperately needs new, more sustainable agricultural technologies that provide very high productivity but require very low input.

 

The Food 3.0 Project is designed to achieve this goal using three key objectives:

Eliminate production losses

Weather, disease, pests, fertility, and spoilage reduce crop yields by up to 75%. Controlling and optimizing the growing environment will produce huge yield increases.

Drastically reduce non-renewable inputs

Combining renewable energy and precision water systems with controlled environment technologies can reduce dependence on non-renewable inputs energy, water and chemicals.

Optimize plants for low-input production

Advances in genomics, molecular biology and physiology make it possible to optimize plants for high yields in low-input environments.

Our planet desperately needs new, more sustainable agricultural technologies that provide very high productivity but require very low input.
