About this book

In opposition to popular belief, Avery argues that high yield farming techniques can both feed the earth's burgeoning population that will reach 8 billion in the next century while preserving wildlands and wildlife. Avery's controversial book claims to show how agricultural technology can save the planet for both people and wildlife.
