AFN’s top 20 guest articles in 2020

December 28, 2020

As we count down the final few days until 2021, we on the AFN editorial team have been taking some time to look back at what has been a momentous year in agrifoodtech.

Our coverage of this cutting-edge industry wouldn’t be complete if not for the contributions of guest authors who regularly write opinion pieces, expert commentary, and technical deep-dives for our readers.

Below is a rundown of the top 20 most-read guest articles we published on AFN over the past 12 months (including sponsored posts from our network partners.)

Guest contributions that racked up plenty of reads include several ‘market maps’ examining the various technologies and business models comprising agrifoodtech; different perspectives on the role that food and ag innovations have in combatting climate change; and overviews of the burgeoning agrifoodtech scene in South and Central America.

Also among our top 20 guest pieces are several contributions from the investment team at AgFunderAFN’s parent company — giving insight on their investment decision-making, the growth of the firm’s portfolio of agrifoodtech startups, and the launch of its impact fund and accelerator GROW.

Here are the top 20 most-read guest articles by unique page views published on AFN this year – stay tuned for 2020’s top 20 reads from the AFN editorial team later this week:
