Facts and a moral responsibility are the keys to initiating and sustaining value partnerships capable of igniting youth capacity. Stefan Frey and Theophilus van Rensburg Lindzter presented those two elements during the 2 October launch of the ANT initiative. Over 2 years, starting January 2020 some 26 young people will participate in a multi-layered, interactive vocational training program that will dramatically increase employability, immediately create a real value chain and establish the beginnings of raising South African young people as in-demand-agricultural-role-players.

  7. 7. Land use by crop and food type Grown from 650 to 720 million hectares (out of 1.6B hectares) over the period 1961-2014 Majority of global arable land is used for cereal production The total land area used for coarse grain (other grain than wheat and rice) has remained stable at 300 million hectares.
  8. 8. The facts on land use …supply more calories and protein for the global population than the almost 4-times larger area used for livestock. (Hanna Ritchie& Max Roser 2019) 3 1.1 Billion Hectare used for crops…
  9. 9. 1961 2014 Land use by crop and food type The most dramatic increase in land allocation is the production of oil-crops (i.e rapeseed, sunflower) raising from 100 to 300 million hectares over the period, 1961-2014. Other crops such as pulses, root and tuber crops, fruit, vegetables, Citrus and Tree-nuts are allocated on the remaining 280 million hectares.
  10. 10. What determines the amount of arable land we use? In regard to dietary consumption the FAO is using a Crop Production Index. This index measures the ratio of crop production for food, feed fuel, fiber, and tobacco to the supply of food calories. This means it provides a measure of how much food is produced relative to how much food is eaten (ie the efficiency of the system in delivering food from the field to peoples` plates). • population • dietary consumption • food system dynamics • productivity Dietary Consumption
  11. 11. What determines the amount of arable land we use? …we reallocate more food towards feed and fuel (renewable energy)… IF… … we would have to continue increasing agricultural output to ensure food supplies remain adequate. THEN…
