In the coming decades, the world must arrive at solutions to the major challenges of feeding a burgeoning population, mitigating and adapting to climate change, and preserving biodiversity and essential ecosystem functions. Plants underpin all agricultural and natural ecosystems and environmental impacts on plant systems will cascade at local, regional, national, and international scales. But plants will also be the basis for solutions.  Our vision is to use Discoveries that connect: from fundamental insights to better plants, sustainably grown, serving the world to help secure a sustainable future for coming generations.
