So Why does Agriculture need to be Improved?

The answer you'll hear most often about improvement of agriculture is that agriculture needs to produce more food because the world's population is growing. That's certainly true since agriculture remains a cornerstone of an industry that is vital to putting food on our tables all over the world. 3LW along with many other companies, governments and organizations, have been working to create a system that help farmers grow more. But it's important to note: the world doesn't just need more food, it also needs better food that's more nutritious. To this end, 3LW continues to find ways to make the process of growing food more efficient which is also aligned with our environmental needs, so that farmers use less water and land, and better utilize things like fertilizer, herbicides and pesticides.

Right now, there is a big debate over how agriculture should work, and we understand why. Agriculture affects all of us, directly and indirectly. It affects us directly through the food we eat and it affects us indirectly through its relationship to the environment, the use of natural resources and the global economy. Even though farmers grow a lot more than food (such as cotton for clothes and corn and grass for fuel), we think it's a good thing consumers are increasingly interested in understanding where their food comes from. It's the first step to understanding how agricultural systems work, and what's at stake.

What is 3LW Doing to Help?
Some people believe the correct answer to our challenges is to move backwards in time toward an agricultural system that relies less on human innovations and more on human labour. While we respect that opinion, we don't share it. Agriculture has benefited from technology and the people who grow our food have sought new ways to improve their own lives—and ours—by producing more with less.

We believe agriculture should be improved for the same basic reasons that medicine, engineering, architecture and computers should be improved: because human innovation is at the center of human progress. We are a company committed to improving lives by improving agriculture. It is our purpose to work alongside farmers, academics and society and find solutions to make agriculture more sustainable.

We believe our job is to analyze the problems and challenges of agriculture and use human innovation to find solutions. Sometimes this innovation takes the form of scientific advancements while others take a more traditional approach all aimed at feeding the nation. But what they all have in common is this: they represent progress in the human struggle to feed ourselves using the limited resources the earth provides—and the unlimited resources of the human imagination.
