It is a good ol’ battle of tradition versus change. With supplies low and prices up, Gonzalo Oviedo acknowledges that the most obvious solution to the current food crisis is to increase food production. However his approach certainly differs. Oviedo finds the techniques utilized by corporations to increase food production to be overly sycophantic towards the agricultural commodity and crippling to the ecosystem that supports it.

Like a good science experiment, it is always good to introduce new approaches. The solutions Oviedo offers involve a more localized form of agriculture that is suitable for the natural environment as well as adaptive to the climate changes. But with corporations unlikely to change their tune about an established way of profit, it may be more ideal for Oviedo to offer solutions that is adaptive to the controlling school of thought.
