On Our Plate: Hope for the Future of Ag in an Uncertain Season

Posted by on February 13th, 2017 | 0 Comments »

The global agricultural and nutrition challenges we face are complex and significant.  This week’s edition of On Our Plate highlights a number of innovations, practices and partnerships to make the world’s agri-food value chains more productive and sustainable, even in a season of uncertainty and change in the ag sector and beyond. Thanks to developments in precision agriculture, bio-innovation, nutrient management, improvements in animal health and strategies for reducing postharvest losses, our agricultural value chains are building their capacity to meet global goals that sustainably reduce food insecurity, malnutrition and poverty.

See the 2016 Global Agricultural Productivity Report for more on agricultural productivity and sustainability in an uncertain season.
