Steve Savage

Steve Savage is a scientist (PhD Plant Pathology) with more than thirty years of diverse experience with crops and agricultural technologies.

He has worked on everything from biological controls to chemicals to genetics to biotechnology. He has worked for a university (Colorado State), a large company (Du Pont), a small company (Mycogen) and for the last 13 years as an independent consultant.

He writes about farming both to address widespread myths and to confront the real challenges of sustainably feeding a world population headed to 9 billion in an age of climate change. Steve writes from sunny San Diego county in California in an office with a view of his home vineyard and garden.
