Ensuring food supply to a growing world population
The United Nations estimates that the world population of 7.2 billion in mid-2013 is projected to increase by almost one billion people within the next twelve years. It is projected to reach 8.1 billion in 2025 and to further increase to 9.6 billion in 2050 and 10.9 billion by 2100. "In 1940, one person in U.S. agriculture could only feed 19 people. By 1960, one farmer could feed 26 people. Today, a farmer feeds 155 people worldwide," say authors of Living in a World of Decreasing Resources & Increasing Regulation: How to Advance Animal Agriculture. But limitations in resources is forcing agriculture to turn to technology to improve efficiency and assist in the supply of a growing food demand.
