Agriculture is one of the oldest and most important industries that
human civilization has established. Fundamentally, agriculture relies on
the efficient utilization of natural resources, such as land, water,
nutrition, and other chemicals to produce the basic necessities of human
lives, including food, fiber, feed, and fuel. As predicted by the United
Nations, the world’s population will increase to approximately 10
billion by 2050. The continuously increasing pressure to feed a rapidly
growing population presents a huge challenge to the agricultural
industry: How to sustainably produce enough agricultural supplies to
meet such a huge demand.
