Green State TV released a new episode recently featuring Alex Avery with the Hudson Institute's Center for Global Food Issues. The episode is about pesticides, organic agriculture, and the threats that should and shouldn't concern us.
Green State TV is an interview series, sponsored by Syngenta, that seeks to engage people in conversations about agriculture, the environment and other important issues such as world hunger and sustainability.
Because modern agriculture is so efficient, fewer people than ever have direct experience on the farm. But everyone, on the farm and in the city alike, has an interest in making the world a better place. How do we end world hunger? How do we provide adequate nutrition for the 9 billion people will inhabit the world in 2050 and protect the environment at the same time?
