The issue of food security is of paramount concern for our sustainability. Currently, there are approximately 1 billion hungry people in the world. The issue of hunger is further compounded by the fact that almost 1.4 billion people in the world live on less than $1.25 per day. The population of the world will reach 9 billion by 2050. This is going to hike the food demand significantly. In the backdrop of growing concerns over climate change and its adverse effects on crop yields, there is a burgeoning need to address thee issues immediately and effectively.
