The main concern with the food movement these days is that old fashioned production methods will yield old fashioned yields, as in, one-third of our food would be lost. This is a tough pill to swallow considering the people going hungry now all over the globe and the predicted population increase.
Still, no matter how many times farmers mention this life and death concern, it seems to fall on deaf ears. How exciting to see our challenge graphically! We hope this video will help more folks understand that while organic and local grown foods are great options, they are not long term solutions.
In case you don’t have time to watch (you really should MAKE time), the main point of the video is “Yesterday’s agriculture cannot feed 9 billion people.” I wish more people would really hear this message.
