One farmer in the U.S. today produces enough food to feed 155 people.

From 1948 to 2011,

soybean yields doubled, corn yields grew more than fourfold, and labor productivity increased by nearly 16 times. In the same period, total factor productivity (TFP, the contribution from all inputs in production) grew by about 150%.

Farmers are using new technology to protect their crops.

For example, seed treatments can reduce soil surface exposure up to 90% compared to in-furrow application and 99% compared to surface application.

Nationally, women make up 30% of farmers; in Arizona alone, women make up 45% of farmers, the highest proportion of any state.
