BCCT DTG EVENING: FUTURE OF FARMING IN THAILAND
“Why Smart Farming is essential to narrow the Yield-Gap, facilitate growth for Agri-Industries whilst Alleviating Rural Poverty”

The Kingdom’s role as ‘The kitchen of the world’ is based on lush and fertile lands and its ability to produce more food than it consumes. The United Nations claim that by 2050 there will be 2 billion more mouths to feed across the world. Thailand has a key opportunity to pay a pivotal role in global food production to meet these growing demands, bringing increased wealth to the Kingdom. To achieve increased agricultural production, farmers must close the yield-gap across all major crops. 

Advanced technology must provide a pivotal role to assist Thai farmers to achieve the growth that will bring Thailand and its farmers increased prosperity, and ensure its own food security goals.

North America, Europe and Australasia have already embraced this technology. However, the farming system there is based upon large-scale farms, and technology challenges remain significant in bringing this to smaller-scale farm concerns. Biosci’s technology is well placed to bridge this gap for the benefit of all Thai agri-food stakeholders.
