World Population Day

  • The United Nations estimates the global population will reach 9.7 billion by 2050.
  • In order to feed two billion more people by the year 2050, crop production must at least double.
  • Without an increase in funding for agriculture research and development, major field crops are at risk of declining up to 20% in the next 30 years as adjustments to population occur.
