Celebrate Earth Day – AZ Farming

Did you know that the world’s population is expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050, and to feed this growing population, the world will need to increase food production by up to 70%? That’s where Agricultural Technology comes in! Emerging technologies are increasingly relegating food shortages by optimizing limited resources, regulating water management, and providing soil analytics. Innovations in the industry, such as indoor and vertical farming, are creating new ways of farming. 



Arizona, the #1 state in the nation for lettuce and leafy greens during the winter months, has been a trailblazer in AgTech. The state’s experts are engineering innovative ways to grow food in an arid climate, from automated farm tractor technology to sustainable microalgae products that improve soil health. Arizona’s universities are developing unmanned aircraft systems to pollinate date palms and automated vehicles to make farming more efficient. 




Did you know that Arizona’s agriculture economy is worth $23.3 billion and provides 138,000 jobs? And, with 800 Arizona farms using renewable energy-producing systems, the state is leading the way in sustainable agriculture. The brightest minds in this dynamic industry have been engineering innovative ways to grow food right in Arizona, developing cost-effective, sustainable methods for solving food shortages. Let’s support this exciting and essential industry that is tackling the challenge of feeding our growing population on planet earth!
