Take a second and check out this article, “The only thing that will feed the world is farmers” John Hart, Southeast Farm Press – December 17, 2004
“There is no single technology that will feed the world. The only thing that will feed the world is farmers,” Savage said at a forum on agricultural biotechnology held at North Carolina State University in Raleigh Nov. 18.
I could not agree more. There is so much talk about precision ag, new seed varieties, new biotech studies and other advances in technology. It still comes down to people and in this case farmers.
We need farmers who are gaining a better understanding of the advances of technology and applying that knowledge to their respective farm practices.
Check out some advances in technology and see how technology, along with people can make all the difference. We need a closer connection between technology and farmers. Getting farmer buy-in is the key! Anything less is a loss.
