Dramatic changes in agriculture needed as world warms and grows, researchers say
Date:2/11/2010

She noted, for example, that her research collaborators recently released a new rice variety for Bangladesh and India that can better withstand flooding, an environmental stress that reduces yearly yields by 4 million tons enough to feed 30 million people in these two countries.

The researchers also suggest that future food, feed and fiber crops would ideally be capable of making better use of nitrogen from the environment, to minimize water pollution and greenhouse gas emissions associated with chemical fertilizers.

Additionally, they recommend that efforts aimed at increasing agricultural productivity and eliminating global hunger should be focused on:

  • Re-evaluating restrictive regulatory policies that now govern the use of genetically modified crops;
  • Establishing a public facility within the U.S. Department of Agriculture for safety-testing genetically modified crops;
  • Integrating agriculture and aquaculture systems in order to sustainably raise crops, livestock and fish; and
  • Developing crops and productive farming systems for extremely dry and saline regions.
