  3. With springtime upon us, farmers across the U.S. are heading out to the fields to plant crops that will feed our families in the months ahead. With many environmental challenges facing our nation, today’s farmers take great pride in conservation methods to preserve the land and leave it in optimal shape for future generations.

    While a majority of farmers implement sustainable practices on their farms, it’s important to remember that in the face of varying lands and climates, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. However, thanks to advances in modern technology, farmers nationwide are more capable than ever of fighting hunger, protecting the environment and meeting customer demands.

    In this interview, farmers Kristie Swenson and Kim Bremmer provide an inside look at springtime planting season on their family farms. They also explain how modern technology can be utilized to maximize productivity and protect the environment. Finally, they discuss what the future holds when it comes to modern agriculture, addressing misconceptions, biotechnology and everything in between.


    Kristie Swenson is a grain farmer in Trimont, Minnesota, specializing in the planting and harvesting of corn and soybeans. She is an expert in seed and crop protection product sales, seed traits and products, and is experienced in basic agronomy, banking and agriculture finance.

  4. Green growth is a strategy for achieving sustainable development. It focuses on overhauling the economy in a way that synthesizes economic growth and environmental protection, building an economy in which investments in resource savings as well as sustainable management of natural capital are drivers of growth. An economy that aligns with sustainable development objectives provides opportunities for using financial resources to both meet needs and reduce the vulnerability of socioeconomic systems to environmental change and resource constraints.

  5. Especially over the last 50 years, the burning of fossil fuels has released vast quantities of carbon dioxide into the lower atmosphere. Consequently, each of the last three decades has been successively warmer than any preceding decade since 1850. Climate change affects the social and environmental determinants of health such as heat, clean air, safe drinking water, sufficient food, and secure shelter. Climate impacts on human health will include impacts from heat waves, extreme weather events, reduced air quality, and climate-sensitive diseases. Other linkages exist between climate change and human health. For example, changes in temperature and rainfall, as well as droughts and floods, will likely impact agriculture; in some regions of the world, this may compromise food security and threaten human health through malnutrition, the spread of infectious diseases, and food poisoning.
