Food security is one of the rising global issues particularly in this era. it has been wider spread around the world trying to create awareness among every household and every individual. Moreover, eradication to this problem seems quite challenging but we can always suggest ways to improve them in order to have a safe and healthy society. There are some ways in which we can improve our global food security challenges such as;
closing the yield gap, in many parts of the world, current agricultural land is not reaching its potential, yielding 50% less than what it could produce. closing the gap between what it is being produced and what could be produced would both reduce the need to clear land for agriculture. secondly, using the fertilizers more efficiently, efficiency of fertilizers could be gained through adjustments in the timing, placement and type of fertilizers. thirdly, Raise low water productivity, improving irrigation systems and planting crops that use less water would be an effective way to tackle this. lastly, one of the major solution for food security is reducing food waste. These are some of the solutions that can make some impact on the solution for global food security issues.
