    A message from the President


    Dear CSAS Members and Visitors,

    Please let me start by wishing good health and humor, as well as inspiring ideas for any of your ongoing projects. A great deal of our current activity in the forthcoming month will be focused on the organization of the CSAS meeting in Salt Lake City.

    At the global and national stage, agriculture, food production and nutrition are topics that often do not get the attention they deserve. Taking the security and safety of food for granted is a risk. Food is, after clean air and water, the most vital component of our physiological needs. The future positive images are clouded when we forget to support a sustainable food production.

    Our society needs to foster a scientific hub to strengthen the relationship between applying science and governmental policies for a holistic and sustainable development for our future and the generations to come.
