Global Agricultural Productivity Initiative at Virginia Tech
A new report just released by Virginia Tech on agricultural production around the world shows a widening gap between what is produced and what will be needed to sustain life for billions of people.
At a global industry conference in Des Moines, Iowa they talked about
Insects: We shut it down because we are not used to eating.
Animals: What role do animals play in global food production?
Tariffs: We know this protectionist movement in the United States is creating havoc
and communication: We need to listen.
Tech President Tim Sands says their GAP report indicates production currently is increasing at 1.63 percent, short of the 1.73 percent needed
President Tim Sands: Since 2010, the GAP report has been a call to action that urges world leaders to invest in proven strategies to produce food, feed, fibre and biofuel in a sustainable manner.
The challenge is how to sustain 10 billion people, in the world of 2050.
