ISO standards and agriculture
From tractors and trailers to methods for testing soils and even fish farming, ISO standards play an essential role in feeding the world.
As pressure on land and resources increases alongside the needs of a growing population and the demand for high-quality food, efficient farming is more important than ever.
ISO standards enable efficient use of fertilizers and fuel, delivering substantial reductions in global emissions. Consumer health and quality food are also priorities addressed in ISO standards. Precision agriculture and the accurate application of chemicals help protect consumers and get the most from the land.
Below you can find out more about the most commonly used food safety standards, who develops them, and new projects in the pipeline.
