Author Frank Viviano, a foreign correspondent based in Italy, has covered stories in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Africa. Photographer Luca Locatelli specializes in capturing images depicting how people and technology interact.

Frank Viviano and Luca Locatelli have really captured the full extent of what research, collaboration and science can achieve in agriculture. In fact, I feel they have done this so well, that as the owner of this website, I have decided to license this article for publication on the site. I hope to show anybody visiting my website that the future of feeding the world can be a bright one, if the farmers of the world set our minds to it.

I sincerely hope that you enjoy this exceptional article about highly advanced practices in agriculture, and the spectacular results that are possible.
