Delve into the wondrous world of agritech in Singapore, and discover our nation’s growth in high-tech farming.
Since our independence, Singapore has had to overcome our lack of natural resources through grit, ingenuity and dynamism.
The same holds true for the future when it comes to our food sources. Currently, our global metropolis imports the vast majority of our food from all across the world.
In the future, however, this may no longer be feasible. Climate change and its various effects may lead to dwindling crops and animal produce in many countries, endangering our sources of food.
To weather the coming storm, our local farmers have been stepping up their game, with technological innovations and ingenious new agricultural methods.
These days, our produce not only sprouts up from Singaporean soil, but is grown high up on rooftops, and nurtured in the depths of our tropical waters.
The world of agritech is one of limitless possibilities. Here’s a small taste of what the future holds for produce proudly grown in Singapore.
