The 2015 GAP Report® highlights the impressive legacy of the United States’ conservation agriculture system, which was built in the wake of the 1930s Dust Bowl crisis & created a vibrant agricultural economy & abundant food supply. It demonstrates that threats can be overcome, but continued commitment & investment are necessary to generate new innovations to conserve soil, water & other precious natural resources, assuring that we are maintaining a sustainable breadbasket for tomorrow’s challenges. The report also shines a spotlight on Zambia, a country that is diversifying its agricultural production systems & building its capacity to become a regional breadbasket in southern Africa.
