"Annual cereal production will need to rise to about 3 billion tonnes and annual meat production will need to rise by over 200 million tonnes to reach 470 million tonnes to feed 9.1 billion people by 2050. This figures only will be real applying precision agriculture techniques with IoT technology," states Alicia Asin, Libelium's CEO.
