The world of agriculture is changing. Our farmers have always been innovative and have had to make changes on their farm business to survive and to stay competitive in the world market.
Our farmers today live in a world where environmental concerns and increased demand for food are creating challenges never seen before.
According to the United Nations, the global population will increase by more than two billion people in the next 40 years, and many reports have indicated that agricultural production needs to double by 2050. Industry experts agree that increased production of food, fiber and fuel will be achieved by intensified production and not by expanded arable land base. Genetic and biotech seed industries have predicted yield increases of three to four per year. However, to optimize the yields of advanced seeds, fertilizer inputs must be optimized to provide the greatest potential for success.
