Agricultural Sustainability: can technology reduce waste and increase yield?

Share this page:

Agricultural Sustainability

Agriculture takes a big toll on our planet. With the global population growing by 1.1% every year, finding a sustainable agricultural model that produces sufficient food whilst minimising waste is undoubtedly the biggest challenge that agribusinesses must overcome.

This article, Agricultural Sustainability: can technology reduce waste and increase yield, looks through a patent lens at the technologies behind two key areas; wastewater reduction and reducing crop destruction, uncovering the following points:

  • China dominates the competitive landscape of both wastewater and crop destruction prevention technologies, despite its high levels of pollution
  • Universities in China, Korea and Japan monopolise the wastewater treatment technology landscape
  • Corporate organisations lead in their investment into crop destruction prevention technologies, yet fall behind in the wastewater treatment technology space
