The 1990 world population of 5.5 billion is projected to grow to 10 billion by 2050. Can the future demand for food be satisfied? This question is particularly difficult given that even in 1990 1.1 billion people in developing countries were living in poverty and more than 500 million in extreme poverty. This book addresses the question of how to feed the projected population a generation from now and discusses the challenges this presents. It book will benefit a wide range of professional workers inthe agricultural sciences and in government agencies.
