FAO Flagship Publication: State of Food and Agriculture 2022FAO Flagship Publication State of Food and Agriculture 2022The United Nations (UN) Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has released the 2022 edition of the State of Food and Agriculture (SOFA), which examined how automation in our agrifood systems might contribute to reaching Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Key Points:
i.Food production can be made more efficient and environmentally friendly by using agricultural automation, which can range from tractors to Artificial Intelligence (AI).

  • However, if it remains inaccessible to small-scale producers and other marginalised groups, it can worsen inequalities.

ii.The report examined 27 case studies spanning multiple technologies across the world.

  • Of the 27 service providers, only 10 are profitable and financially stable. These ten providers, who are primarily based in high-income countries, used mature solutions (widely adopted). These methods mostly served large-scale producers.

iii.The spread of automation varies greatly between and within nations, with adoption being especially limited in Sub-Saharan Africa.

  • In 2005, Japan had more than 400 tractors per 1,000 hectares of arable land, whereas Ghana had only 0.4.
