Plant nutrition science for sustaining public trust
When M. K. Hubbert wrote his Science paper on peak oil in 1949, he noted with concern projections that world population could possibly hit 9 billion within 200 years. The actual increase has been more than twice that fast. And it’s projected to continue further. Sustainable intensification of agriculture will be an essential part of our future. Attaining it will require plant nutrition science that sustains public trust.
