Technology Advancing Agriculture to Feed World
Tuesday, April 24th, 2012
Technological advances will continue to drive crop advances as global agriculture prepares to feed and clothe another 2-3 billion people by 2050 but on less land worldwide linked to water scarcity.
“Technology will help us feed the world – jumping from 7 billion to 10 billion people on 80 percent of the land farmed today,” said Mike McCarty, president and chief executive officer of Helena Chemical Company (HCC), Collierville, Tenn.
McCarty believes this will be the biggest challenge and opportunity which agriculture worldwide has ever faced.
