The Future of Food: Plant science approaches to the global challenge of food security

By 2050, it is expected that the world population will reach 10 billion. The amount of food necessary to feed our appetites is expected to rise by 50%, and as things stand it is impossible for our current methods of agriculture and plant production to sustain this rapid population growth. But scientists at the University of Sheffield are using their knowledge of fundamental plant processes to research new approaches to sustainable food production.
