During her first visit to India as secretary of state, Clinton discussed the need to address world hunger via crop productivity and increased crop yields.
“We have to work together. It is imperative that we invest in science that increases crop yield,” Clinton said at the Indian Agricultural Research Institute.
“India has 3% of the world’s crop land but feeds 17% of the world’s population. Its leadership in agriculture is crucial…we are looking at ways to accelerate in a short period of time the growth of productivity,” Clinton said.
