The Future of Agriculture

In a new report by the Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition (BCFN), researchers address agriculture’s reliance on unsustainable fossil fuel-based energy sources and the increasing negative effects of climate change on global food production. The report provides policymakers with key suggestions for future agricultural policies, including increasing the variety of crops farmers grow to help improve biodiversity, and increased investment in technology that will help farmers adapt to climate change, rather than simply increase their crop yields.
