Theme: Sustainable food production

Food enough for all?

How will we feed nine billion people in 2050 without

destroying the environment? New technologies and

new patterns of consumption are some of the answers.

AU-researchers have helped develop genetic tests that have contributed to healthier animals and greater productivity in Danish cattle breeding over the past five years. Spreading the technology to the rest of the world can help ensure that we will be able to feed nine billion people in 2050.
