A continuously growing world population, changing eating habits and volatile weather conditions are three of the most prominent factors affecting global agricultural production today and into the future.

The world’s population increases by three people every second and, although this seems like an eminently manageable number, in 2050 when this second’s three new-borns are adults, an almost inconceivable 9.7 billion people will inhabit the Earth – that’s about one third more than currently do today.

In order to meet the major challenges of modern agriculture we need innovative solutions. Developing plants with a high tolerance to the increased volatility of worldwide weather conditions will be just as important as the development of innovative solutions for disease and pest control.

Considering the above, and evaluations performed by public authorities such as the National Sanitary Veterinary and Food Safety Authority, it is no exaggeration to say that in today’s world small farmers and their families on six of the seven continents are the people who feed the entire world.
