4 months 1 week ago

As a result horticulture gets attention only as a side subject when specific crops are being addressed.

Food shortages could be most critical world issue by mid-century
1 year 1 month ago

The world is less than 40 years away from a food shortage that will have serious implications for people and governments, according to a top scientist at the U.S. Agency for International Development.

"Food issues could become as politically destabilizing by 2050 as energy issues are today."
