Agriculture facts of the week:
-One U.S. farm feeds 166 people annually in the U.S. and abroad.  The global population is expected to increase by 2.2 billion by 2050, which means the world's farmers will have to grow about 70% more food than what is now produced.
-A whopping 40% of all food grown and produced in the U.S. is never eaten.
-One acre of land can grow a variety of crops, including 50,000 pounds of strawberries for 2,784 pounds of wheat.
-Careful stewardship by America's food producers has spurred a 34% decline in erosion of cropland by wind and water since 1982.
-25% of all farmers are beginning farmers (in business less than 10 years);  their average age is 46.
