Agriculture is at an interesting spot at the moment. With loads of exciting things happening at the agritech scene, ranging from biotech startups, inventing new super-power crops, to hardware companies, fighting against the drought or to startups working on data-based solutions- they all face similar challenges. With 70% of water already used and the land available for agriculture limited, it’s quite clear that the only solution is producing more crop on the limited acres. At the end of the day, we have to do more with less and the only way to do it is with technology.
Garage48, The Netherlands Embassy in Estonia, Republic of Estonia Rural Affairs and Estonian University of Life Sciences have joined the forces to bring some fresh new solutions into the field of agriculture!
Let’s make agriculture great again TOGETHER!
