Food security and scarcity of available land

Increase in land for cultivation will not be possible in future. A sharp increase in urbanization, a growing demand for food and bio-fuel, climate change and land degradation are expected to lead to a shortage of land in 2050. In many countries, the productivity of food crops, especially of cereal crops is much below the potential yield. A special attention is required by the scientists and growers to focus on the productivity.
