Current farming practices improving to feed the very hungry world.

In 7 of the last 8 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.

It now takes 30 percent less energy to grow a ton of corn than just a decade ago.
latest advancements in biotech & improved production methods help farmers squeeze more from every drop of water, fuel and fertilizer and from every acre of farmed land than at any time in history.
