How Farmers are Feeding the World
Here are some facts about the struggles farmers face when trying to feed the growing world:
• Farmers must produce enough food for the 6.3 billion people in the world.
• Today, one U.S. farmer produces enough food to feed 155 people.
• Tomorrow, all American farmers will face demand that will require they produce more food on the same or fewer acres, with fewer inputs, and in a sustainable manner.
• According to the United Nations, global agriculture will have to produce 70 percent more food over the next 40 years than it does today. That means one farmer will have to produce enough food for 264 people.
