Analysis: How the Uber of Tractors Is Revolutionising Farming

Africa-based startups are coming up with innovative models that encourage the sharing of farm equipment. This could have a massive impact on food security across the continent.

The rapidly growing world population, which is predicted to rise from 8 billion to nearly 10 billion by 2050, puts increased pressure on our food systems, with billions more mouths to feed in a relatively short span of time. According to current estimates, food production will need to grow by up to 60 percent from current production rates over the next couple of decades.
