How ag-tech can save the world | TechCrunch
“As investors, our job is to find the visionaries that dream up the future and partner with them to help make that dream a reality. In agriculture, with the latest advancements in technology, we half imagined small harvesting robots, skyscraper vertical farms in every city and sensor-studded fields overseen by drones. Yet, as fun as it is to imagine this kind of future for agriculture, we were hungry for a more comprehensive picture, so we dove in to get an understanding of what the real challenges are — and 10 ways to turn them into opportunities.”
