This blog is one of the communications efforts sponsored by CropLife Foundation – a 501-3C non-profit supported by CropLife America and the agricultural community.  The post is run by Steve Savage, an agricultural scientist with over 35 years of diverse experience with the technologies that enable modern agriculture.  Steve leads an effort at CLF that seeks to explain those benefits to the broader society (email: savage@croplifefoundation.org).  We will be including contributions from other authors as well.
