Agricolus has been recognized by the United Nation Global Compact as one of the startups promoting sustainable development worldwide in the agricultural sector.
In fact, the company adopts an approach to sustainability called “Triple Win” that can be achieved through the use of the platform:
- reducing the environmental impact
- minimizing agricultural costs
- improving the quality of food
Today agriculture has a great task related to production and, at the same time, to sustainability. World population will increase by more than a third by 2050: we will need 60% more food than available (Looking ahead in world food and agriculture: Perspectives to 2050, FAO) .
It is important to increase productivity and, at the same time, reduce the inputs used – water, fertilizers, plant protection products – for the environmental and economic sustainability of agricultural production.
AgriTech tools, which allow to collect and interpret information to make data driven decisions, become necessary.
