Farmers play a crucial role feeding the world’s population. We also help maintain viable rural communities and care for much of the world’s land resources. But the challenges we face are increasing.
Farmers will need to increase production significantly if future demand for food is to be met. Yet the world’s resources of land and water are finite. In addition, we are facing more extremes of climate and long-term shifts in growing conditions due to climate change, while price volatility is also on the increase.
