California is in the midst of one of its worst droughts in recent history, which is taking a significant toll on local farmers. Little to no rain since 2011 has drained groundwater levels to record lows, and the snow caps of the Sierra Nevada mountains have receded to the brink of disappearance. This has led to a considerable need for new enabling technologies that not only understand the constraints faced by today’s farmers, but also aid in ensuring an environmentally and economically sustainable future. This market insight will outline the major challenges facing today's farmers and highlight a specific enabling technology, the iCAST™ Crop Cultivation System, that has the potential to transform the future
