More Can Be Done Now to Address the Growing Global Demand for Grain
Date:6/3/2008

help improve farmer productivity around the globe. By bringing together a number of advancements, DuPont is planning to increase yields for both its soybean and corn seed products by 40 percent in the next 10 years," Gumina said. "Farmers, agri-businesses, grain handlers and public extension programs should be encouraged to work together to address the near-term needs. Longer term, it is critical that government policies create an environment for advancing sustainable productivity."

Gumina outlined four long-term solutions that would increase productivity and help alleviate poverty and hunger:

-- Encourage research and the dissemination of technologies and techniques

for sustainable agriculture and water management. Public and private

sector scientists must collaborate to develop technologies that will

help crops be more tolerant to drought, salt and heat, and can utilize

nutrients more efficiently. Once produced, it is critical that they

are made accessible.

-- Deliver extension and agronomy programming at a local level to ensure

productivity increases are sustainable. The benefits of investing in

research and innovation can only be realized if the technologies can be

adequately disseminated.

-- Increase stewardship training in agricultural best practices at the

local level. For productivity gains to be sustainable, farmers must

use the best stewardship practices available to help improve soil

productivity and limit environmental impacts.

-- Establish secure land tenure and recognize female land owners. Women

play a key role across sectors and at all levels of society. Their

contributions must be recognized.
