Crops FACE the future

Donald Ort, Robert Emerson Professor of Plant Biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Associate Editor of the Annual Review of Plant Biology, gives a talk titled "Crops FACE the Future." In this lecture, he discusses the global carbon cycle as it relates to current and future challenges in agriculture and how some of these might be addressed using new technologies in plant biology, particularly photosynthesis. He also shows how much agricultural production will have to increase to feed the world in 2070. This presentation was recorded in October 2012 at the Trends and Advances in Plant Biology Symposium, Zurich-Basel Plant Science Center.
