Holistic Food Policies Can Improve National Security
Date:5/20/2010

a holistic view and collaboration across the value chain and across the public and private sector.

“There are many things that farmers can do within a field to increase their output, but their limiting factor often lies elsewhere,” Schickler said. “In addition to getting the right inputs, they also need, for example, to have a market for the crop they produce and a way to move the grain from their farm to their customers.

“The fact that successfully increasing agricultural output can be limited by so many different things is why collaboration is key to increasing global food security,” he said.

Schickler noted the recent partnership in India between DuPont and Uttar Pradesh Government’s Department of Agriculture as an example of how sectors can work together in new ways to improve food availability and livelihoods in areas facing chronic food insecurity. The alliance was formed to get hybrid rice and mustard to small and marginal farmers to help optimize farmer inputs and improve net income. Farmers will be able to access farm schools to receive agronomic and technical training and advice on crops during critical stages of development.

“Agriculture is intrinsically local, and we work hard not to forget that as we are working to bring better performing crops to developing markets,” said Schickler.

Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business, is the world’s leading source of customized solutions for farmers, livestock producers and grain and oilseed processors. With headquarters in Des Moines, Iowa, Pioneer provides access to advanced plant genetics in nearly 70 countries.
