How Quantum Computing Will Be Applied to Agriculture Within the Coming Years

  1. Wild fisheries management, productivity and environmental performance of aquaculture
  2. Reforest agricultural lands with little intensification potential
  3. Link productivity gains with protection of natural ecosystems
  4. Plant existing cropland more frequently, improve soil and water management
  5. Increase livestock and pasture productivity, reduce food loss and waste
  6. Conserve and restore peatlands
  7. Limit inevitable cropland expansion to lands with low environmental opportunity costs
  1. Reduce enteric fermentation through new technologies
  2. Reduce emissions through improved manure management
  3. Reduce emissions from manure left on pasture, reduce emissions from fertilizers by increasing nitrogen use efficiency
  4. Adopt emissions-reducing rice management and varieties
  5. Increase agricultural energy efficiency and shift to non-fossil energy sources
  6. Implement realistic options to sequester carbon in soils.
  1. Adapt to climate change
  2. Improve crop breeding
  3. Achieve replacement-level fertility rates
  4. Avoid competition from bioenergy for food crops and land
  5. Shift to healthier, more sustainable diets.
