The Washington DC 100: Partnering with bright minds

← Go Back

America’s youth are needed in the agricultural industry now more than ever. By 2050, farmers across the globe will be responsible for providing food for over nine billion people, and we’ll need to nearly double food production. The next generation of Americans must be prepared to unlock new and unique ways to feed, fuel and clothe the world.

As the Deputy Secretary at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, I have the unique opportunity to witness the high degree of skill and talent our youth possess and look forward to partnering with these bright young minds to meet this challenge.

– Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Stephen Censky
