The ARCO project arises from one of the most important challenges facing humanity in the 21st century: the adaptation and moderation of climate change. Total food production has to increase by 70 percent between 2005 and 2050 to meet the needs of the population, and at the same time, agricultural production has to preserve the ecological system to maintain its productive base. Balancing these two objectives implies an obligation to adopt more efficient and sustainable production methods at the same time.
