The world of agricultural technology, or agtech, is rapidly evolving.
It’s automating laborious tasks and providing farmers and growers with greater knowledge and insight into their crops than ever before. As technology evolves so does the needs of the farmer and the growing environment. Around 20% of the world’s food production is grown within cities rather rural areas and inherent in this is the multi-billion dollar industry of indoor growing and hydroponics.
The industry includes $5 billion in urban farming in the US and $5.7 billion for legal cannabis production.
