Martin Parry

Martin Parry'The projected imbalance between future supply and demand has engendered great concern over global food and energy security. The increasing demand results both from the rising population and growing wealth whilst increasing urbanisation, land degradation and climate change will limit production of agriculture and forestry. One of society's major challenges is to grow more on less land, using less water, fertiliser, fungicides and pesticides than ever before.

I believe that Food Energy and Security is the natural home for the best high quality and high impact original research on agricultural crop and forest productivity, as well as acting as a central forum for discussion of the most important advances in this field'. Professor Martin Parry is Professor in Plant Science for Food Security at Lancaster University.

Read Martin Parry's inaugural editorial, 'Food and energy security: exploring the challenges of attaining secure and sustainable supplies of food and energy'.
