Science in the future of agriculture: Can innovation double food production – and improve sustainability? @ EURACTIV Network Office
Nov 5 @ 11:08 – 12:08

The European farming sector is facing a number of challenges – producing more and better food from shrinking arable land for a growing population, while preserving the environment and ensuring good living standards for farmers. Many suggest innovation can help tackle these issues. Others call for an agricultural turnaround towards organic agriculture.

Boosting knowledge and innovation in agriculture, forestry and rural areas is part of the EU’s priorities enshrined in its rural development programmes. Through intelligent digital devices with highly advanced image and sensor technology, such as robots and drones, monitoring and maintenance of soil quality can be improved, helping to eliminate pests and diseases while further reducing the need for agrichemicals.
