By 2040 the world’s population will reach 9 billion. In order to feed this larger, more urban and richer population, food production must increase by 70 percent. Annual cereal production will need to increase about 50 % to 3 billion MT. Annual meat production will need to almost double to 470 million MT.
More inputs without knowledge do not result in sustainability and higher production levels. Advanced information technology used by billions of people will help master the structural challenge of increasing food production in a sustainable manner. eLEAF offers such technology by building a global, accessible, and current database of vegetation, water, and climate using its innovative Pixel Intelligence Mapping technology.
