Monsanto Chief Technology Officer and 2013 World Food Prize Laureate Robb Fraley, Ph.D., will speak about agriculture and technology’s role in feeding a growing and hungry world population Friday, Nov. 7, at 11 a.m. in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.

While global population is projected to reach 9 billion people by the year 2050, the University of Florida is working to address this critical problem with its “Challenge 2050” program and through the ongoing efforts of its researchers and Extension offices throughout the state.
