In seven of the last eight years, the world has consumed more grain than it produced. Experts now predict our planet will need to double agricultural output by 2050 to feed a growing population. By some estimates, that means producing more food in the next 50 years than has been grown in the last 10,000 years.
Meeting this immense global challenge requires putting the best available tools into farmers’ capable hands. These include the latest advancements in hybrid and biotech seeds, fertilizer and improved agricultural practices and methods.
In their lifetime, today’s farmers already doubled agricultural production once. Now they must do it again. Provided the right tools, we believe they can meet that challenge.
