About our work
Communication and community are at the heart of agriculture. We’re building on that tradition with technology by creating this online forum to facilitate an open dialogue about all things ag. Have a question about GMOs? Conserving resources? Technology in agriculture? Just ask.

Our planet faces unprecedented food security challenges. Some estimates project that we will have to grow twice as much food in the next 30 years as we do today to keep up with demand – all while using fewer resources. For example, it is estimated that by 2030, rice yields will have to rise by 30 percent—from the same area of arable land—to guarantee food security.
Coupled with climate variability and evolving pest and disease pressures, we know that maintaining the status quo in agriculture and the food value chain is not enough. We have the opportunity and the responsibility to grasp this moment, and to help move humanity forward by working together in a multi-stakeholder environment to shape a food system that is better for farmers, consumers and the planet.To learn more about our efforts to help ensure food security, click here.
