What would it take to mainstream “alternative” agriculture? | Ensia

What would it take to mainstream “alternative” agriculture? | Ensia | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it
Innovative food systems such as agroecology can become the norm if we weave a web of legitimacy from science, politics, society and values.

John Payne's curator insight, July 27, 12:13 PM
While not a substitute to the paths to legitimacy described in this article, there are a couple of others I believe to be important: the leverage that can be provided by automation, and the influence of a powerful ally that stands to profit from making that automation available. I'm referring to the agricultural equipment industry, which, if it were to embrace the full potential of robotics to enable better agricultural practices, could both accelerate the adoption of those practices and profit handsomely from doing so.

Agroecology can help fix our broken food system. Here’s how. | Ensia

Agroecology can help fix our broken food system. Here’s how. | Ensia | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it

“In short, there’s a systems problem with the many incarnations of ‘sustainable food.’ Good intentions notwithstanding, most alternatives leave untouched the underlying structures and forces of the agri-food system. They don’t ask how farmers can listen to their land, scientists can listen to farmers, eaters can listen to restaurant workers and the government can listen to people’s needs. Sustainable food, it turns out, lacks a science with which to deal with a system as complex as farming and food. But there is an approach that embraces complexity and change. It involves developing the capacity to listen, to grow new connections, and to build solidarity among animals, plants and people. It’s called agroecology.”

Perhaps the most important contribution robotics can make to enabling better land management and food production practices is in the realm of data collection, building a strong foundation upon which to build a true science of sustainable methods.
