LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Panelists at a discussion in Lincoln will cover strategies for increasing agricultural production to meet global demand.

The discussion is part of the Heuermann Lecture series sponsored by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources. It is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 25 at the Nebraska Innovation Campus Conference Center, 2021 Transformation Drive.

Experts say ag production must increase more than 70% by 2050 to meet the worldwide demand for food, fuel, feed and fiber.
