The confluence of climate change, falling yield growth, and rising demand due to prosperity will make feeding the world a major technological and policy challenge by 2050. Technologies that achieved food security in the 20<sup>th</sup> century will prove inadequate in the 21<sup>st</sup>. Nontraditional and potentially disruptive technologies such as precision agriculture and genomics-enabled modified crops will need to be adopted. In this report, we examine six major categories of such technologies spanning the entire agricultural value chain and map them onto the Lux technology Innovation Grid to assess potential impact. We also evaluate major agricultural production countries such as the U.S., Brazil, India, China, Indonesia, Russia, Canada, and Argentina to determine the suitability of particular technologies for these individual countries.
