Solutions Towards Sustainable Intensification (RTP AgBio + AgTech)
Join RTP AgBio + AgTech as we are hosted by Innovate Carolina in the brand-new innovation hub, 79 Degrees West.
Erosion, pollution, desertification and poor soil health are rising in tandem with a warming climate. Earth is losing the land on which we cultivate crops resulting in stagnating crop yields, food and grain shortages and inadequate world access to nutritious food sources. Sustainable intensification methods promise to increase crop and food growth in a way that preserves and improves existing ecosystems while providing adequate nutrition for the world. Guest speakers, Jiarui and Volker will discuss global and local means toward achieving sustainable intensification and will share their entrepreneurial journeys in improving agricultural systems.
