Abstract

The UN has set a series of goals with the aim of fostering sustainability on our planet. Among these goals, Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2 aims to END HUNGER by 2030. However, under the current global conditions, this will be difficult to achieve without significant efforts by governments and other stakeholders. It is imperative that we prioritize the increase of agricultural production while simultaneously exploring sustainable resources for crop production (Sessitsch et al., 2018). Technologies such as precision agriculture, genetic engineering of crops and the use of bioinoculants and biopesticides hold tremendous potential to enhance crop production.
