Webinar on April 30 at 10:00-11:00AM SGT

Can we feed the world's food needs with Next-Gen tools for Agriculture?

On April 30, a webinar on The tools for next-generation agriculture will be held. The speakers will be Dr Gajendra Pratap Singh & Dr Min Hao Wong. 

Researchers from the Disruptive & Sustainable Technology for Agricultural Precision (DiSTAP) interdisciplinary research group of the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), MIT’s research enterprise in Singapore have been working on research and the technologies to revolutionize how food is produced to meet the demands of a growing population in an increasingly resource-constrained world.

To learn more about the recent developments in research, technology, and innovative tools that will transform the agriculture industry and revolutionize food production, we would like to invite you to a webinar, organized as part of a series by research centres at the Campus for Research Excellence And Technological Enterprise (CREATE).

SMART DiSTAP Principal Investigator and Scientific Director Dr Singh and Consultant Dr Wong will be speaking on:

  • Implementation of AI algorithms to process and interpret data and to characterise soil, phytobiome, and crop health
  • Assessment of economic potential and discussion of ‘Farm to Fork’ implementation strategies
  • Recent developments of analytical tools (engineered plant nanosensors and Raman spectroscopy) that are rapid, non-destructive, able to detect plant stress and provide real-time information on living plants for early diagnosis in field conditions before the onset of visible symptoms and subsequent yield loss
  • Integration of the tools in traditional/urban farming to meet Singapore’s 30 by 30 goal, increase productivity, alleviate growing pressure on agriculture to meet the rising food demand, address food security and achieve positive economic outcomes

Please note to RSVP before 28 April.
