Farm to shelf total quality management, enabled by traceability technology, will dramatically reduce food waste, Grant said.

Growing technology by 2022 will include robotic harvesters, LED lights, indoor growing, and produce growing on urban roofs.

‘Robots are getting fantastic in 2022,” Grant said. He said robots may be packing, labeling, shipping and even picking produce in 2022, he said.

“The impacts of technology will be profound in the growing industry,” he said.

Grant said packaging in 2022 will include ethylene scrubbers, time-temperature indicators with a focus on improving shelf life, flavor and nutrition.

“Technology will be transformational,” Grant said. “What are you doing about it today?”
