Farmers comprise 12% of the workforce in Greece, but produce only 3% of the country’s GDP. Technology might help to improve economic and social prosperity of the farmers together with their local communities and citizens of urban areas.
At the same time traditional forms of knowledge that take the specific ecosystems into account should not be neglected. Let’s envision all possible futures, and reimagine our the future of agriculture in Greece together.
Science and Technology Worsening Food Inequality.
- Science and technology have improved agricultural practices, reducing water usage and synthetic chemicals.
- Mega-crop producers have caused small-scale farmers to abandon their profession, worsening food inequality.
- Dependence on high-tech facilities has increased economic and food inequality, limiting participation in food production.
Science and technology have played a crucial role in improving agricultural practices, allowing farmers to tailor their methods to the specific needs of each crop. This has resulted in a significant reduction in the use of water and synthetic chemicals, making farming more sustainable.
However, the rise of mega-crop producers has had negative consequences for small-scale farmers. Faced with tough competition, many small farmers have been forced to abandon their profession. This has led to a worsening of food inequality, as large-scale establishments dominate the industry and control the production of food.
Furthermore, the reliance on high-tech facilities and laboratories for food production has increased people's dependence on these large-scale establishments. This has further exacerbated economic and food inequality, as only those with access to these facilities can participate in the production process.
In summary, while science and technology have brought significant advancements to agriculture, such as reducing water usage and synthetic chemicals, they have also contributed to the concentration of power and resources in the hands of large-scale producers. This has led to the abandonment of small-scale farming and an increase in economic and food inequality.
Greenhat Hackers Revolutionize Food Independence
- "Greenhat" hackers can significantly increase the yield of fruit-bearing trees for farmers and agricultural producers.
- Farmers and producers regain independence in terms of land, energy, and sourcing raw materials.
- Lack of knowledge on growing one's own food hinders self-sufficiency, but potential for relearning exists.
The low yield of fruit-bearing trees can be significantly increased by "greenhat" hackers. This has resulted in farmers and agricultural producers regaining their independence in terms of land, energy, and sourcing of raw materials. As a result, they can now practice their profession more effectively and contribute to a fair and sustainable food market. However, it is important to note that the knowledge on how to grow one's own food has been completely lost by individuals. This means that people might not have the necessary skills to cultivate their own crops, which could hinder their ability to become self-sufficient in terms of food production. Nevertheless, with the increased support from "greenhat" hackers and the regained independence of farmers, there is potential for individuals to relearn these skills and contribute to a more sustainable and equitable food system.
