Food production needs to be increased by 70% by 2025, because the world population size is increasing and is expected to hit 9 billion by that year.
Currently, infectious diseases affect potential yield by around 40%, and some farmers in developed countries can experience yield loss 100%!
Smartphones are widely used around the globe - expected to hit 5 billion by 2020. This makes smartphones an easily accessible tool to detect and identify diseases and get help from professionals in the area.
