  • Michel Petit of the Institut Agronomique Mediterraneen in Montpelier, France, will quantify the benefits of an efficient global agriculture system;
  • Dr. John Kruse of Global Insights will detail the expected global demand for agriculture products in 2050;
  • Dr. Jason Clay of the World Wildlife Fund will predict the condition of the global population if agriculture is limited to its current rate of production improvement;
  • Senator Richard Lugar will identify specific goals that must be accomplished today and in the future to achieve the goal of doubling agricultural output by 2050. This chapter was written by Senator Lugar and the late Dr. Norman Borlaug. After his passing in September 2009, it was completed with the help of Dr. Borlaug’s team.
  • “The studies describe the progress that’s already been made and underscore the tremendous amount of work that still needs to be done. With continued innovation, cooperation, and new technologies, we will sustainably feed the world,” said Lesher.

    The Global Harvest Initiative is dedicated to spurring the development and sharing of agricultural innovations with those that need it most. Members include Archer Daniels Midland Company, Conservation International, DuPont, International Conservation Caucus Foundation, John Deere, Monsanto, TransFarm Africa Corridors Network, and World Wildlife Fund. Further support is welcome from public and private sectors entities sharing the goal of closing the global productivity gap. For more information, visit www.globalharvestinitiative.org.
