Digital Solutions for Farming in Asia

Register for Asia-Pacific Agri-Food Innovation Week here: Asia’s agri-food system is under stress from the impact of climate change, urbanisation, soil erosion, pests and a fragmented supply chain with high loss rate, yet also needs to produce increasing volumes to feed a rapidly growing population. As pressure mounts on farmers to increase the volume, quality and safety of outputs while using fewer resources, reducing waste and impact on the environment, new digital technologies will be critical to delivering swift, sustainable change in a region still heavily reliant on a manual workforce and traditional farming processes. In this episode we discuss the opportunities and benefits offered by new digital agtech solutions, and the challenges for widespread adoption in the region. Justin Gong, Co-Founder and Vice President, XAG, China (from 02:20) Suresh Sunderarajan, President & Group Head - Strategic Investments & Corporate Functions, OLAM INTERNATIONAL, Singapore (from 22:40) Host: Graham Brown, CEO, Pitch Media
