Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) is very proud of the work that the Water for Food Global Institute at the University of Nebraska has been doing for the future of sustainable agriculture by encouraging the involvement of young people in the industry.
“Agriculture has become cool! I never thought I would see that,” said Fortenberry at the recent Water for Food International Forum at the World Bank. “Agriculture as a leading edge science integrated successfully into a holistic approach to ecology is capturing the imagination of many young people.”
Fortenberry says we are at a tipping point when it comes to natural resources, leading us into what he calls “economic regeneration…a holistic approach to the ecological system is the new thinking and the new dynamic,” he said.
