In 2030, we will have the technology to feed the world, push back food-borne illness, and reduce the environmental footprint of agriculture, fisheries and aquaculture. Photonics will help supply safe, nutritious and affordable food for all and establish a sustainable value chain from farm to fork. By using ever more precise sensors and measuring devices, farmers, food processors and ordinary consumers will be able to monitor and certify the safety, quality, content and even the origin of food – anytime and anywhere.

Photonics technologies can monitor soil health and hydrology, predict protein levels in grain harvests, determine when to pick fruit, map water quality to check the health of fish stocks.
