How Do We Feed the World in 2050?
Someone once said, “The future, according to some scientists, will be exactly like the past, only far more expensive.” I might agree with that in certain situations; however, I’d like to suggest a rosier scenario when it comes to farming and food production. The population is growing, people need food, and if we are prepared, we should be able to grow and produce enough to satisfy the ever increasing market demands. We’ve done it before.
