Plants Text Messaging Farmers
Leaf Sensor technology has been developed by AgriHouse and University of Colorado  that allows plants to communicate with  humans about their water needs. This innovative new agriculture technology will save  water and energy resources for farmers. The leaf sensor technology is funded and sponsored by the NASA and the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Giant exhaust fans to absorb carbon dioxide from the air
British start-up Storegga is developing one of the world’s first projects to hoover carbon dioxide directly from the air, before pumping it out to sea and burying it forever.Storegga’s plan starts with its Acorn project at St Fergus, which will offer traditional carbon capture and storage for big industrial players plus a hydrogen generation plant. But the novelty value comes from so-called “direct air capture” (DAC) of carbon dioxide.Companies in sectors such as aviation and agriculture will be able to offset their unavoidable carbon emissions by paying to remove an equivalent amount of carbon dioxide from the air.http://www.afr.com/business/energy/macquarie-backs-british-plan-to-hoover-carbon-from-the-air-20210330-p5

Vertical Farms Ready For Take-Off
Vertical farms allow cultivation at latitudes incompatible with certain crops such as the desert or arctic.  Vertical systems allow farmers to extend the latitude range on which crops can be grown on the planet, from the deserts of Dubai to the 4-hour winter days of Iceland. If you were to  grow crops on Mars you would need to use this kind of technology because there is no soil.
