This is agriculture

Agriculture is beautiful green fields; agriculture is bountiful vegetables; agriculture is ripe fruit – and agriculture is much more.It touches every aspect of daily life from the sheets on your bed, to your morning coffee, to the fibre-board panels in your car door. It is the meal on your table, the clothes on your back and the paint on your walls.

Modern plant science has increased the productivity of agriculture. Farms can grow more on each acre and can do it more safely and fuel efficiently than ever before. Biotechnology and crop protection products play a vital role in expanding our global capacity to produce renewable resources that are used to feed and create other useful products. This is a path to a green world – with space for forests and fields – that feeds, clothes and fuels; using resources responsibly so that growth continues.
