UAE Minister reviews smart agricultural technologies in US

During her visit to the United States, Mariam Hareb Almheiri, Minister of State for Food Security, reviewed the latest technological developments in indoor and smart agriculture, which are key future solutions to providing enough food for the whole of humanity.

She also participated in the Global Conference of the Milken Institute, a non-profit organisation that aims to promote international prosperity, as one of the main speakers in a discussion about food security issues and the role of smart and vertical farming.

Almheiri stated that smart indoor agriculture is a promising area and is part of the efforts to increase food production and decrease consumption of resources while pointing out that recent technological developments have made it possible to produce large quantities of vegetables, fruits and other fresh products in urban environments using minimal space and less water, compared to traditional farming.
