Criticism of modern U.S. agricultural production practices and the desire of some to move toward organic and local methods would affect lives on a global scale according to the next Heuermann Lecturer.
Robert Paarlberg will present the need for agricultural advocates to defend modern agricultural practices at the next Heuermann Lecture, presented at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln on Feb. 27.
In his lecture titled “Our Culture War Over Food and Farming,” Paarlberg will discuss how a change by American agriculture to fit consumers demanding organic, local and slow food will be felt worldwide.
Some people “have concluded that our dominant food and farming systems are unhealthy, unsafe, environmentally unsustainable and socially unjust,” Paarlberg said in a University of Nebraska release.
