Increasing demand from abroad created by rising incomes and a growing middle class will present opportunities for U.S. agriculture. The world population is expected to reach more than 9.2 billion by 2050, with growth coming primarily in developing countries, most of which are net importers of food products. The convergence of population growth and rapid urbanization, especially in developing regions of the world, will likely result in growing demand for food as well as changing dietary patterns.
With the current 2020 population around 7.8 billion people, this means that agriculture production will have to rise by 70% in order to meet the projected needs.
U.S. agriculture and food sectors are key drivers of economic growth, producing $2 trillion in annual revenue and $130 billion in profit for more than 2.6 million businesses. The agriculture and food sectors employ 19 million people in full and part-time jobs, 9 percent of total U.S. employment in 2013. On-farm employment provided more than 2.6 million of these jobs. Agriculture accounted for 4 percent of global gross domestic product (GDP) and in some developing countries, it can account for more than 25% of GDP.
For these reasons the agriculture industry fared better during the Great Recession than many other sectors and remains a bright spot in the U.S. economy.
People and animals will always need food, and healthy food at that!
Agricultrue is changing rapidly. It has been moving steadily towards a more biological approach. This often raises more questions than answers as we progress. Our success in Ag depends on our ability to discover and change practices that are leading to soil degradation and the deterioration of plant, animal, and human health!
Agriculture in past years has held to several myths that seems to have become the core values of the industries practices.
Over the years we have learned that these practices have become strongly embraced in the industry and are completely disastrous to the health of our soil and bodies. Also, we are limiting our yields and quality.
At Soilcraft we are regenerating our current agricultural systems, and practices.
We have launched our franchise opportunity for those who are qualified and have the same passions and vision as we do.
