In an article for The Conversation, Food from Thought researcher Dr. Evan Fraser discusses technologies that have the potential to initiate an agricultural revolution worldwide when combined with the right policies.
“Agriculture’s impact on the planet is massive and relentless. Roughly 40 percent of the Earth’s suitable land surface is used for cropland and grazing. The number of domestic animals far outweighs the remaining wild populations. Every day, more primary forest falls against a tide of crops and pasture and each year an area as large as the United Kingdom is lost. If humanity is to have a hope of addressing climate change, we must reimagine farming.”
