A Debate over Low-Input Food vs. High-Input Food
Bert G. Kerstetter '66 Ethics and the Environment Lecture Series -- Speakers: Pedro Sanchez, Columbia University; Charles Benbrook, The Organic Center; Eric Sachs, Monsanto; Moderator: Tim Searchinger, Princeton University -- In the United States and around the world, advocates of âslow food,â? organic food and sustainable agriculture have challenged the dominant model of agricultural production based on use of the most advanced technologies and higher use inputs to expand production. Other experts argue that more advanced science in the U.S. and Europe, and expanding many modern agricultural techniques in particular to Africa are critical to reducing world hunger and avoiding the need for more deforestation. This panel will discuss these points of view.
