The global forum for innovations in agriculture

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


The first-ever Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture (GFIA), sponsored by the Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority, featured 150 of the world's top innovations in the field and attracted over 3,200 participants from 62 countries. The 150 top innovations all showed great potential as effective solutions to the challenges of agriculture and food security. The Sahara Forest Project (SFP) is an integrated technology solution that addresses the question of how to feed a growing population without incurring a large negative environmental impact through energy consumption, CO2 emissions, water scarcity, desertification, and deforestation. Grove OS is a web-connected hardware and software technology for installation in controlled-environment farms, such as greenhouses and hydroponic growing operations, that gives growers the data and insights they need to make more profitable decisions by optimizing crop growth and significantly reducing the risks of crop loss due to pathogen outbreak.
