Agricultural Sustainability: Can Technology Reduce Waste and Increase Yield?

Agricultural Sustainability: Can Technology Reduce Waste and Increase Yield?

Learn how technology is supporting the global drive to achieve agricultural sustainability in this LexisNexis® Cipher report.

Agriculture takes a big toll on our planet. With the global population growing by 1.1% every year, finding an agricultural sustainability model that produces sufficient food whilst minimizing waste is undoubtedly the biggest challenge that agribusinesses must overcome.

  • Who are key players dominating the wastewater and crop destruction prevention patent landscapes?
  • What can the patenting trends tell us about investment into these areas?
  • Which countries are prioritizing investment into technologies that achieve agricultural sustainability?

This article, Agricultural Sustainability: Can Technology Reduce Waste and Increase Yield, looks through a patent lens at the technologies behind two key areas; wastewater reduction and reducing crop destruction, uncovering the following points:

  • China dominates the competitive landscape of both wastewater and crop destruction prevention technologies, despite its high levels of pollution.
  • Universities in China, Korea and Japan monopolize the wastewater treatment technology landscape.
  • Corporate organizations lead in their investment into crop destruction prevention technologies, yet fall behind in the wastewater treatment technology space.
