We lose a football field of farmland every second to soil erosion and urbanisation. At the same time, global population is expanding at a rate that means we need to produce more food in the next 50 years than we did in the last 10,000.
How to accomplish this sustainably is the 21st century's greatest challenge, because:
The future success of agricultural economies and global food security depends upon sustainable ecosystems and healthy communities. With this in mind, even those in urban areas need a better understanding of agriculture.
"There is increasing pressure on rural communities to produce enough food. In 1950, a hectare could feed two people. By 2030, it will need to feed five people."
