For years, discussions about the future of the agricultural industry have converged on the arbitrary yet consequential date of 2050, a point two generations from now when the global population is expected to balloon to nearly 10 billion people. If the ag industry were to stay rooted in today’s technologies….we will need to find a way to increase production by about 70 percent to feed the world.
The question is whether what’s being done is enough to support the ag industry and to keep both our world’s developed and developing nations on a path toward future food security.
While activists work hard to inject antagonism into many food debates, there’s a growing belief among many ag corporations and industry associations that it will take everyone willing and able to contribute to our food supply….
Myth busting organic & conventional farming: reality is both are safe & contribute to consumer choice, food security & affordability. Time to end the “food fights” & celebrate ALL our farmers’ success! https://t.co/rK6MeevTnl
