The digital evolution within the ag industry has been constant over the last decade and continually evolving; however, it doesn't come without its challenges. Digital ag and ag tech aren't always easy to adopt.
What Spread is focused on is fully integrated solutions on a large scale and then also adding key technologies to make the business more profitable - so adding lots of automation, sensors and data collection points.
Because biofuels are made from agricultural products, fuel production from such products implies the use of agricultural land and crops that can also be used for the production of food.
It is estimated that one acre of vertical farming offers the equivalent production of at least four to six acres using conventional outdoor methods.
While conventional plant cultivation practices cause climate change, deforestation, loss of biodiversity and ecosystem degradation, this is not the case with sustainable agriculture.
The growth in the agricultural testing market is attributed to stringent safety and quality regulations for agricultural commodities and the increase in outbreaks of foodborne illnesses.

Farming is one of the oldest professions in the world. That's why it's easy to overlook the role innovative technologies play in agriculture if you're not involved in the industry.
The technological advances in agriculture are not just to do with social media savvy cows - the global agricultural robots market was estimated to account for a market revenue of $2,927 million in 2016, but is expected to rocket to $11,050 million in 2023.
If we can incorporate technology into already existing farming practices, we can increase production enough to feed the growing world. Technology can be used to grow more food on existing farms and to grow food in small spaces, such as indoor farms.
