white paper

The Future of Food Production is a report prepared by leaders of the AEM members who focus on agriculture to identify current and future changes in the agriculture industry and the resulting impact on farmers around the world. AEM’s Vision Food Production Future team, including sponsorship and engagement from Topcon, invested two years of research, discussion and debate to build consensus on how the agricultural industry will evolve over the next decade.

Trends indicate that consumers are showing an increased interest in the food source at a time when issues affecting food production include persistent supply chain weaknesses, environmental challenges, demographic shifts, and technological innovations. Farmers’ efforts to secure a much-needed food supply for the world face another challenge as a shrinking skilled workforce continues to achieve more with fewer resources.
