Contributing to world food security is no mean task

Today agriculture is becoming more complex than ever and we are facing new challenges. How can we share the world’s fresh water resources in a fair way? What are the biggest challenges for farmers and urban folks, and how can both work together? What role will a changing climate play in our thinking? To meet the demand of a growing world population, we must find new ways to sustainably increase agricultural productivity.
