Food security needs water security

CFAES Dean Bruce McPheron spoke April 16 at OARDC’s 2015 annual research conference, whose theme was “Water Quality: Sustaining a Vital Resource.” You can watch his talk, called “CFAES’s Role in Solving Today’s Challenges for a Better Tomorrow,” above. His comments on water quality come near the end, around 22:10. “When we talk about food security,” he said, “we have to have water security first or there is no food.” OARDC is CFAES’s research arm.
