Why it’s important kids learn about modern agriculture

 Kelsey Pope

  1. Future of agriculture: For one, the future of agriculture as we know it is up to the next generation. These kids will grow up to be future decision makers, influencers, government officials, and just general consumers. The more they know NOW about how food is raised, and why we raise it this way, the better they will understand it in the future and protect it, instead of trying to change what we do. Sustainability is teaching the next generation about agriculture so they can carry on the legacy.

What is Additive Manufacturing?

April 12, 2025

Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is a transformative approach to industrial production that enables the creation of lighter, stronger parts and systems.

3D Printing

3D printing, also known as additive printing technology or additive manufacturing (AM), creates complex objects of endless variety. Designers and engineers fashion their ideas from sketches to blueprints using digital programming. Not that different from Gutenberg’s press, a 3D printer then prints the object as thousands of thin layers of material, accurately placing and adhering each layer one after the other.

Using additive manufacturing applications for design and development of food and agricultural equipments

Int. J. Materials and Product Technology, Vol. 58, Nos. 2/3, 2019

: Additive manufacturing (AM) plays a vital role in the globalised world as it provides innovative technologies to manufacture customised parts with different materials in different volumes. Food and agriculture sector needs extensive customisation towards designing and development of types of equipment. Through this paper, we are proposing an extensive usage of AM in these sectors. AM is capable for designing/production of customised/innovative food items such as coffee, pizza, burger, biscuits, cakes, chocolates and other everyday food items as per the required volume of ingredients, shape and colour. AM brings innovation in the agricultural sector, with its capability to produce customised physical models and making them directly for use onto the farms. It enables testing of obtained design towards flaws/productivity before the actual production of agricultural equipment in the factory. A farmer can be provided ergonomically useful and customised agricultural equipment as per the need of shape, size and design.
