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.
