WASHINGTON — Archer Daniels Midland Co., E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Co., Monsanto Co., Deere & Co., and the Renewable Fuels Association have teamed up to form the Alliance for Abundant Food and Energy, an organization committed to sustainably and responsibly improving diets and reducing dependence on fossil fuels through increased agricultural productivity. The A.A.F.E. said it is "optimistic" about global agriculture and its ability to meet growing demand for food, feed, fuel and fiber, and is "confident" in the ability of farmers to increase productivity to meet these needs.
