- 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
