Abstract

ASABE members have long recognized that the intersection of our dependence on energy, the stress on our water supply, our need to grow more food, and the resulting impact on our environment is the “grand challenge” of our time. Agriculture is at the heart of this intersection, relying on access to energy and a supply of fresh water to safely grow, process, and distribute our food. An increase in food production is required due to population growth, which includes an increase in meat consumption as more countries develop economically.
