Agriculture and the environment

According to the FAO, with the world’s population forecasted to reach 9 billion people by the year 2050, agricultural productivity will need to increase by about 70% globally. But while the demand for food is increasing, the amount of arable land and fresh water for agriculture is decreasing, and the effects of climate change are putting even more pressure on growers.

Arcadia’s traits such as Water Use Efficiency and Salinity Tolerance, help growers protect their crops against the effects of climate change, while others, like Nitrogen Use Efficiency, can help improve crop productivity while reducing agriculture’s negative impact on the environment.
