Harvey Ball, the creator of the iconic smiley face, established the first Friday of October as World Smile Day - a special day dedicated to spreading kindness and smiles across the globe. It appears that the world of AgTech and agriculture has, metaphorically speaking, embodied the spirit of World Smile Day. The USDA's International Food Security Assessment (IFSA) has revealed promising findings for over 80 low to medium income countries in terms of increased incomes and reduced vegetable oil prices since 2022, thus alleviating food insecurity for millions of people. This is certainly an uplifting development worth celebrating.
You may wonder, how do lower vegetable oil prices contribute to increased food availability? The drop in vegetable oil prices can have a positive impact on food security since it reduces the cost of a staple ingredient present in many diets. This reduction in cost allows individuals to allocate their resources towards purchasing other essential food items. Moreover, with higher incomes, individuals and households can invest in improved agricultural practices like irrigation systems or modern farming techniques. This leads to increased agricultural productivity and, consequently, a greater availability of food. Lower food costs can also free up resources for other vital needs, such as healthcare and education, indirectly contributing to improved food security.
This is precisely what our team at Future Farm AgriTech is striving to achieve. We are dedicated to developing a continuous monitoring system that is non-invasive and promotes sustainable and regenerative farming practices. By combining cutting-edge technology with our decades of experience, we are committed to ensuring that everyone has access to an ample food supply. We invite you to join us on this journey of growth and progress. Come Grow with Us!
The idea for Future Farm AgriTech was born from our desire to address and potentially solve the issue of food inequality while also improving the environment.
Currently, the agricultural industry relies heavily on products filled with chemicals and pesticides. These products have been developed with little consideration for personal and environmental impact. These unethical solutions often not only harm the health of farmers, but also damage the ecosystem. Additionally, the pesticides meant to increase crop yield have been found to eradicate other crops.
It is widely recognized that farming is a labor-intensive industry and profitability can vary greatly depending on several factors. Small-scale farms, which are responsible for supplying a significant amount of our edible produce yet have not received sufficient attention, especially in relation to root and tuber crops like potatoes. These crops are among the most commonly consumed vegetables worldwide. Unfortunately, small-scale farms have been declining over the years due to health concerns and income uncertainty.
Driven by this knowledge and testimonials, Future Farm AgriTech has set out to design and develop a new solution. By 2050, farmers will need to increase food production by approximately 60% in order to meet the demands of a growing population. The current systems in place, both in our country and in others.
“Methods must be improved. This is where Future Farm AgriTech finds its inspiration, determination, and passion. Our motto: "Taking farming to new levels".”
