By Marina Leiva

Over the past ten years, venture capital investment in the agritech sector has grown consistently, as the chart above shows. In 2020, investment in agritech increased by 45.8% to $7bn, up from $4.8bn in 2019. Then, in 2021, it increased by 61.4% to $11.3bn, representing a peak in the investment, and considerably higher than the $600m in 2012.
