Focusing on science-and technology-based agriculture is one of the keys to breaking the poverty bondage; increased agriculture productivity increases income, promotes health, and protects natural resources.

Poverty has become a serious, multifaceted threat to billions of people in the world. It comes vividly painted in the face and flesh of malnourished children who extend their hands daily to ask food or quietly die in street corners. It comes in the stinking odor of sick, untreated victims in highly polluted areas. It comes in dark and dingy classrooms deserted by learners. It comes in the settings of many anemic farms whose lands cannot be filled for lack of capital and support from governments. It also comes most vividly in heavily logged forests, flash floods, soil erosion, and so on.
