Advanced Agricultural and Food Systems

Food is critical to sustain life, but rather than simply producing more food for a growing world population, it is imperative that we also produce better foods that increase production efficiencies while using fewer resources.

Agricultural systems must also adapt to a changing climate. Consequently, researchers in the college are investigating the ways in which climate change will affect local weather and resulting land use. These scientists are particularly interested in examining the issue of global climate change at scales from large to regional and how information can be shared across these different scales.
