Photo of the Day: Agriculture's Great Promise

December 18, 2012

"There is so much potential in agricultural development because most poor people in the world feed their families and earn their income from farming. When farmers increase their productivity, nutrition is improved and hunger and poverty are reduced. The near-term rise in food prices and the long-term increased demand for food will create opportunities for small farmers even in the poorest countries." --Bill Gates
