Howard G. Buffett, a farmer and executive director of the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, spoke to a group of media on the Monsanto Company campus at St. Louis recently. One aspect of concern expressed by Buffett was soil erosion, which could make it impossible to maintain increasing yields to feed an exploding world population. His foundation has a primary mission of improving the standard of living and quality of life of the world’s impoverished and marginalized populations.
