With explosive population growth, rising life expectancy, spreading urbanization, and increased per capita income, today’s agriculture industry is defined by a constant demand for more and better-quality calories. At the same time, supply is being constrained by factors such as soil degradation, rising temperatures and competition for land. In this challenging landscape, a new breed of agribusiness leader is needed – one who can think strategically, drive innovation, enhance the integrated value chain, and speak the language of governments, universities, and NGOs.
