Space ->Farm ->Fork: Satellites & Our Food Supply
Imagine a world where farmers are no longer incentivized to grow as much as possible, a misguided practice that leaves much of that production left to rot for lack of a buyer. Technology can help reduce this waste as digitized and other sophisticated crop forecasting will help inform farmers on how much to grow and when. But today, food is the least digitized supply chain. Per the US Dept of Agriculture, 29% of farms lack an internet connection altogether. How can continuous global connectivity help the agriculture industry and how do we achieve it?
