Feeding the World

American farmers do a lot to help feed the world! With the population expected to reach over 9.1 billion by 2050 and almost a billion people without sufficient nutrition now, agriculture not only has to step up it's methods of production, but must also find new and innovative ways of supplying nutrition to the world. Tomorrow, we'll explore the differences between the farms of yesterday and the farms of today... just another way we're celebrating National Ag Week 2012!
