As the world population grows toward 2050, food production must increase by 1.7 times the current level in order to feed the entire population, and this increase in crop yields must be accomplished under global environmental changes. In addition, the control of greenhouse gases is also an important issue for agriculture. Currently, decarbonization in the agricultural field is underway from various approaches including production sites (cultivation technologies), and new agricultural production technologies are required as we shift to environmentally-friendly agriculture. In this lecture, we will introduce the possibility of constructing new food production technology using adaptation strategies of crops to global environmental changes and developing new crop production technology by fusion of different fields, including current research results.
