Supporting Food Security with Science

From cornfields in Iowa to California’s Central Valley to African savannahs — as our climate changes, the world needs innovative ways to grow more food.

For decades, the scientific community has focused on building water supplies and enhancing irrigation techniques. Now, we’re measuring plant health from space, creating early warning systems and enhancing the efficiency of water use.

But we can’t do it alone. We rely on a global network of partner institutions, civil society organizations and NASA’s Earth-observing satellites to find the best ways to reshape our food and agriculture systems.
