Agriculture Industry

Agriculture remains the single largest employer in the world, providing livelihoods for 40 percent of today’s global population. The world’s 500 million small farms provide up to 80 percent of the food consumed.

However, 800 million people worldwide still need more regular access to adequate amounts of food. Adding to the traditional challenges is a changing climate impacting many farmers: global carbon dioxide emissions have increased by almost 50 percent since 1990, and Himalayan snow and ice are expected to decline 20 percent by 2030.

In the coming decades, the agriculture industry, the world’s largest employer and consumer of water, will play vital roles in feeding a projected global population of 9 billion in 2050 and developing ways to reduce groundwater and runoff water contamination connected to food production. Between now and 2050, the World Bank projects that required food production will increase by 60 percent, and water withdrawal will increase by 15 percent.

Did you know calcium sulfate affects plant growth and yield quality? In agriculture, calcium sulfate is best known for improving soil structure, increasing aeration and infiltration, and reducing nutrient runoff and soil erosion. Calcium sulfate also aids in the transference of nutrients to the plant, providing it with valuable nutrients like Calcium and Sulfur. This is why yields and growth are enhanced, and plant health is maximized if all essential nutrients are available in the soil.
