Since 1793 when Eli Whitney sparked off the Industrial Evolution with his invention of the Cotton Gin, Agriculture Technology has drastically impacted the yearly harvest of farmers worldwide. In 1940 one US Farmer produced food for only 19 people. Today, that same farmer feeds 159 people in the US or anywhere in the world.
These productivity gains are directly attributable to the technological advances and resulting efficiencies that define today’s modern farmer. In the US, where land is abundant and agriculture technology is widespread, Americans spend only 10% of disposable income on food each year, according to the American Farm Bureau. Compare this to Italy 14%, China 33%, Philippines 37% and Pakistan 46%.
With the world’s population expected to reach 9 billion by 2050, the UN estimates that food production will need to grow by 70% to keep pace with demand. Since we can’t produce more land, the only way to meet this demand is through the continued evolution and adoption of Agriculture Technology and myAgri’s Agriculture Management Software is helping farmers worldwide improve their business processes by lowering costs and increasing productivity.
