Sustainable Solutions Through Plant Science
Plant science has the potential to generate discoveries that can yield more food and energy for people while preserving our planet’s environment.
Sustainable Solutions Through Plant Science, By the year 2050, agriculture will need to produce 50 percent more food globally, and 100 percent more in developing countries to feed a population predicted to reach nine billion. There is not enough land, water or soil to grow the food we will need without new discoveries. Over 38 percent of the ice-free land on Earth is already used for agriculture and the vast majority of remaining land is largely unsuitable for agriculture. It takes

by Jim Lane Game changer, breakthrough, revolution, quantum leap. A lot of technologies arrive on the Digest’s doorstep wrapped in one of those descriptors, or another. Sometimes wrapped in all of them. But what are technologies that would really r ...
of getting the algae out of the water, or the water out of the algae. Given that a decent microalgae concentration is around 0.1 percent, you have to remove 1000 gallons of water per gallon to get, a handful of BTUs per gallon to move the water, you’re dangerously close to using more energy
