요약

Food and Agriculture are two industrial systems that are fundamental to human life. The structured approach to farming and food production that humans have created over centuries is one of the key factors that have defined how human civilization has developed and progressed, reducing the need for people to spend a large majority of their daily lives fulfilling calorie requirements. ICT has played a role, mostly in supply chain management but is increasingly being included in farm management and even into food development itself. Humanity now faces a choice about what sort of food system it will develop and ICT plays a critical role in that decision.

As a result, Food and Agriculture are some of the industries most vulnerable to digital disruption as critical thresholds are being crossed or neared. Two main sets of ICT interventions will become evident:

1.  ICT solutions that allow humanity to push past natural boundaries through the: 

>  Continued streamlining of the traditional industrialized supply chain through the application of sensors and the creation of more integrated business processes. 

>  Creation of new forms of supply chains that augment food products through data and new technologies.

2.  ICT solutions that place control of food growth and production back into local communities through the: 

>  Creation of reliable, secure, robust and economically sustainable “short” supply chains. These short supply chains allow the re-territorialization of parts of the food system into local areas.

This second group of ICT solutions – effectively implemented – can fundamentally disrupt the industrial structure of several industries simultaneously by redistributing productive elements of the economy across regions, nations and even the globe.

This report outlines both of these types of technologies and how they will become increasingly integrated into the overall food system.
