It will be vital that existing and new technologies be applied across the agri-sciences, which are defined in this context as plant, fungal and insect sciences.

Multidisciplinary approaches being the drivers enabling this. Chemical Biology through physical science innovation (in e.g. chemistry, physics, mathematics, engineering) is able to tackle biological problems on a molecular level and in so doing will lead to the development of novel technologies that will address future agri-science needs.Visualisation showing potential strategies can overcome the challenges.
