Talk to Dr Anne Kovachevich
By 2050 we will need to feed 1.3 billion more people than in 2019. Across the world, highly industrialised farming practices are already in place to try and meet the growing demand for food. At Vulgamore farms in Kansas, up to 25 acres of wheat is harvested an hour. At Granja Mantiqueira in Brazil, 8 million hens lay 5.4 million eggs a day.
In November 2019, Arup Foresight brought together a wide range of industry experts to discuss urban agriculture in Singapore. The participants took part in a learning journey, including a visit to the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering of Nanyang Technological University (NTU), the Oasis Living Lab and the Funan Mall.
