UV light could also reduce the use of pesticides by up to 50%, according to Daan Roosegaarde, the designer behind the project.  Sustainable agriculture is key to ensuring food security for all, says the FAO. -Read on at - www.weforum.org/agenda/2021/01/light-led-crops-pesticides-sustainable-agriculture
