Jennie Popp is a Professor of Agricultural Economics and Area Director of the Center for Agricultural and Rural Sustainability at the University of Arkansas. Her research areas include the economics of water and soil quality risk management for agricultural producers and assessment of best management practices for agriculture.This is a multidisciplinary volume on the use of agricultural biotechnology to provide a sustainable food supply.This edited volume discusses diverse perspectives on sustainable food production systems in terms of the challenges opportunities success stories barriers and risks associated with agricultural and food biotechnology. Possible environmental effects ethical and moral issues potential changes to government policies and economics and social implications are summarised.This edited volume discusses diverse perspectives on sustainable food production systems in terms of the challenges opportunities success stories barriers and risks associated with agricultural and food biotechnology. Possible environmental effects ethical and moral issues potential changes to government policies and economics and social implications are summarised.A challenge of our generation is the creation of an efficient system providing sustainable food and fuel from the land whilst also preserving biodiversity and ecosystems. We must feed a human population that is expected to grow to more than nine billion by midcentury. Agricultural biotechnology is one tool that holds potential promise to alleviate hunger and poverty. However there are complex and interrelated scientific social political and ethical questions regarding the widespread use of biotechnology in the food supply. This edited volume discusses diverse perspectives on sustainable food production systems in terms of challenges opportunities success stories barriers and risks associated with agricultural and food biotechnology. The effects of biotechnology on the environment ethical and moral issues potential changes to government policies and economics and social implications are summarised. This book will interest students professionals and researchers from the areas of bioengineering agriculture and ecosystem science to economics and political science.1.
