Syngenta is looking using a new yardstick to measure farm productivity in light of limited land and water.

Jennifer Shaw, Ph.D., head of sustainability with Syngenta, said, "This is where demands to increase the sustainability of agriculture are leading us," said Shaw. "It's a consequence of our population growth, and the planetary needs of this growth, which will see 2 billion more people by 2050 — more than 100 million right here in the U.S."
