  39. 39. Kenneth G. Cassman Daugherty Professor of Agronomy of University of Nebraska–Lincoln “As we gather during the Centennial Anniversary of Dr. Borlaug’s birth, and as populations continue to rise, the question is whether current trends in food production will adequately provision a stable population of 9-10 billion in a world with a changing climate and provide us with sustainable fresh water resources and acceptable environmental quality. Unfortunately, the answer is NO! ”
