The Pearse Lyons Cultivator identifies new technologies that align with the following focus areas:
When people hear the words “renewable energy,” they often think about solar and wind power. However, there are also many forms of renewable fuels based on biomass. They are closely connected to the agriculture industry.
Greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere reflect heat back toward Earth, acting like the windows in a car on a sunny day.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most-produced greenhouse gas. During the Industrial Revolution, carbon emissions drastically increased, causing the global carbon cycle to become severely unbalanced.
Mycotoxins, which are produced by molds, can negatively impact animal health. As the planet warms, it is believed that many places will see increased mycotoxin production.
Reducing antibiotic and antimicrobial resistance
Antimicrobial resistance, or AMR, in agriculture can negatively impact public health, with an ever-increasing rise in bacterial strains that are less and less sensitive to treatments.
Reducing Water Pollution
Water quality impacts everything on the planet, from the environment to human health and the production of food. However, pollution can find its way into our groundwater, rivers, lakes and oceans.
Producing more food with less land, water and energy
The global population is forecast to surpass 9 billion people by 2050, and we must ensure every individual has access to nutritious food. Agriculture continues to make huge strides in producing more food with fewer inputs, such as land, water and energy.
