Patrick Schnable gives Capitol Hill seminar on the future of our food

Patrick Schnable gives Capitol Hill seminar on the future of our food | Food and Nutrition | Scoop.it
Patrick Schnable addressed a crowd in a hearing room for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Agriculture. The seminar, entitled "Mapping for the future of our food,” focused on the importance of public sector funding of plant science research and development in boosting crop yields amid increasing demands for plant-based products including food, feed, fiber, and fuel. Schnable called for innovation in addressing potential challenges, namely decreasing amounts of arable land, increasing costs and undesirable ecological impacts of agricultural inputs, and coping with climate variability.
Schnable highlighted the value of next generation sequencing technologies in linking genes to crop traits resulting in ultimate improvements in yield, disease and pest resistance, and nutrient utilization. He sees traditional breeding and genetic engineering as complementary approaches in meeting this goal. He stressed that U.S. involvement in this type of agricultural research is essential.

Not sure I really buy the conclusion that "speculative forces are still allowed to run amok in global commodity markets and global food prices are kept so high as to increase the deprivation of the millions of hungry people in the world."

We need to fix the food system. But how?

We need to fix the food system. But how? | Food and Nutrition | Scoop.it
The global food system is unsustainable, and doesn’t get nourishment to those who need it, while others eat too much. We all know what’s wrong but a SustainAbility report finds no consensus on where to go from here.


No answers, then?
