Everyone wants farmers to be more sustainable these days. To be truly sustainable, says Markus Heldt, farmers need to be able to produce more crops on the same amount of even less land than they do now.

Heldt, president of BASF Crop Protection and a speaker at the company’s Ag Media Summit in Chicago, also had some interesting comparisons of conventional and organic food protection. He was interviewed following his presentation at the summit.
