They analyze the nutritional content of food, discover new food sources, and research ways to make processed foods safe and healthy. For instance, corn grown in a field previously used to grow soybeans needs less added nitrogen to produce high yields. Herbicide-tolerant crops are engineered to contain new genes that help plants avoid the harmful effects of particular weed killers. The other route for a major increase in food production is a marked increase in arable land, which the FAO data suggest has played a modest role in the past 30 years.

Undergrad programs include Integrated Plant Sciences (IPS), in which majors explore the science of plant development and production and Agricultural and Food Systems (AFS) which focuses on building a solid background in the agricultural sciences, including working within the complexity of various agriculture and food systems. The difficult task is to reconcile the differences so that desirable change can take place. Numerous practices have been developed to keep soil in place, which include reducing or eliminating tillage, managing irrigation to reduce runoff, and keeping the soil covered with plants or mulch.
