As emerging technologies disrupt the future as we know it, there may even be potential to change the way humans eat.
Jeff Wong, EY Global Chief Innovation Officer, recently interviewed Matt Barnard, Co-Founder and CEO of agricultural technology company Plenty. After growing up on a farm in Wisconsin, and later becoming interested in technology and water efficiency, Matt founded Plenty to focus on bringing agricultural produce back to what it used to be: crave-able, fresher, healthier, cleaner, without pesticides, more local and more resource efficient.
Matt’s passion for agricultural innovation through technologies such as hydroponics, vertical growing, and complex data and machine-learning monitoring systems for crops could help change the future of feeding a healthy world. In his interview with Jeff, Matt explores his outlook and how he thinks about the future and innovation.
Plenty is changing the future of farming and improving the quality and availability of food. The successful agtech start-up is selling out of goods, while at the same time, making the world a better place.
