Special Breakout Session - The Science of Protein Production

As the global population grows to 9 billion by 2040, the demand for protein will double.

Although animal-based protein is often preferred by increasingly wealthy consumers, there will be a corresponding increase in demand for plant-derived protein to feed these animals. Climate change and continued advances in the development of new varieties/hybrids allow producers the potential to grow a wider variety of crops than before.
