Cargill Survey Reveals Consumers Believe Technology Will Feed the World More Sustainably

Technology in agriculture (ag-tech) is how we’ll feed a growing population, make farming more sustainable and improve the lives of farm animals, say 85% of the 3,000 participants in Cargill’s new three-continent consumer survey.
