Entrepreneurial Drivers of AgTech in the Philippines
Modern agriculture has evolved from farmers operating simple mechanized tractors to using high-tech drone imagery of fields or digital farm information systems navigated by a mobile app. Drones and agriculture-smart mobile apps are just some of the AgTech innovations with the potential to disrupt and restructure the global agri-food industry and increase productivity and sustainability across the sector’s value chain. This study explores interconnections among different types of enterprise groups and sub-groups that constitute the Philippine AgTech sector. Although the global growth trajectory of AgTech has been impressive, developing economies like the Philippines lag behind the rest.
