"If the first tech revolution for agriculture was the green revolution, nitrogen, and now we are realizing that the sustainability of soils and ecosystems can’t support such intensive chemical agriculture, the current tech revolution is the opportunity to address that...Right now [farmers] are thinking I’ve got limited resources I need to send my resources out to where I’ve got problems.
