To achieve this, the research will begin by conducting an in-depth analysis of the current state of Singapore's agriculture industry. This will involve examining the existing regulations, and initiatives implemented by the government to support sustainable agricultural practices.

This will involve conducting surveys with consumers to understand their awareness, perception, and willingness to support sustainable agriculture. Additionally, the research will investigate the current practices and technologies employed by local farmers to promote sustainability and reduce environmental impact.

By engaging in interviews with key stakeholders such as farmers, industry experts the research will gather insights into the challenges faced by sustainable agriculture businesses in Singapore. This will include examining factors such as land scarcity, resource limitations, market dynamics, and the economic feasibility of sustainable farming practices. The research will also explore the opportunities for innovation and technology adoption in the industry, such as vertical farming, hydroponics, and precision agriculture.

Furthermore, the study will assess the environmental, economic, and social impact of sustainable agriculture practices in Singapore. It will analyse the potential benefits of sustainable farming, including reduced carbon emissions, improved resource efficiency, and enhanced food security.
