Importance of Human Nutrition in Agricultural Production 
Diets are composed of plant and animal foods that are produced by our agricultural system; accordingly, the support of human health must be an explicit goal of domestic agricultural production. To this end it is imperative that agricultural and food scientists and human nutritionists work together to ensure they have current information about both human nutrition needs and access to healthy diets is incorporated into agricultural research and production. Some problems in human nutrition are closely aligned with similar agricultural problems (especially animal production) and cross-cutting research is beneficial to both.
