Home to more than 60% of the world’s arable land, Africa will be an important source of mankind’s future food and nutritional needs. Across all 54 African countries, agriculture is an important engine of economic growth and is a source of livelihood to more than 55% of the population in mostly small holder farming structures.
While Africa has seen many technological advancements in recent years, more can be done to improve yields through better inputs and sustainable farming practices, minimise supply chain losses and increase transparency across value chains to provide better livelihoods for farmers. There is also scope to deploy digital solutions to remotely monitor crop and livestock health, predict real-time weather patterns to deliver precision farming solutions and more. This presents opportunities for Singapore companies to leverage their expertise to capture a slice of the growing agritech industry in the continent.
Tune in to hear from industry experts on the key agritech trends and opportunities in Africa.
