Amitabha Guha

Guha sees exponential population growth and the accompanying demand for food as a serious issue for the next 30 years. “Helping in a small way to build the agricultural resource base to feed all these people is what drives me,” he says. Guha is managing director for the Malaysia-based Agricultural Research & Advisory Bureau, where he spends much of his time working with Southeast Asian plantations to promote productivity and good farming practices. He focuses on teaching better field management and promoting health and quality of the products.
