Matt Waits, ’99 agricultural economics, is CEO of SST Software, an industry leader in agricultural information management. He led Stillwater-based SST Software to develop an enterprise-level data-management platform that encompasses essential components for meeting site-specific farm management. That platform, known as agX, is now the underlying infrastructure that manages data and provides information services on more than 80 million acres across 23 countries.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    This is just another step in the green revolution that has poisoned the land, water and our food as well as killing off untold amounts of living creatures. Your solution is do more of it and get different results is idiotic The solution is to restore the land that the chemicals destroyed is by natural methods that nature has used for thousands of years. The proper balance of plants and animals can and are restoring it without the use of chemicals and technology that destroyed. They are making worn out land and even deserts fertile and productive. This increase in crop land will feed the increase in population. The only ones that will loose out are the chemical and other big corporations. But we can't have that. How else are we going to turn the rest of the Earth into deserts?

    It confuses me why we look for ways too feed all those soon-to-be humans instead of looking for a way to make sure they don't start existing in the first place. We're already overpopulated as it is… * smh *

    Currently, 40% of corn is consumed by ethanol production.  Stop production of ethanol and the use of corn for other purposes can nearly double.
