“In the 21st century environmental factors weigh heavily on the full actualization of farming, specifically in underserved areas. Utilizing new and innovative applications and methodologies will limit the negative environmental impact, reduce the cost of quality food production, afford opportunities for realistic entrepreneurial creation, and provide cost effective alternatives to fossil fuel consumption which is detrimentally harmful to our air, soil and life.”
