What does sexy, food, world travel and super career bring to mind? Agriculture, of course
For something that engages all the senses, this should be abundantly clear: food and all things associated with it is, in a word, sexy. Yes, sexy as in exciting and appealing. Seriously.
Whether one grows it, markets it or eats it, food is a hot commodity that’s only going to get hotter. As the years tick by, scientists estimate the 9 billion of us on the planet by 2050 will be lured by the desire to have enough delicious, nutritious food.
While that is no doubt a huge challenge, there also is cause for optimism, said Dr. Fred Davies, Texas A&M University Regents professor and Senior Borlaug Fellow of Horticultural Sciences in College Station. He said National Ag Day celebrated this year on March 21, could be a call for people to get intimate with agriculture and the food it yields.
