St. Louis, MO—Global demand for major grains, such as maize, rice, and wheat, is projected to increase by nearly 48 percent from 2000-2025 and by 70 percent between 2000 and 2050, according to research presented by Mark Rosegrant, who delivered ...
to increase by nearly 48 percent from 2000-2025 and by 70 percent between 2000 and 2050, according, Africa from 2000-2050, leading to a doubling of total meat consumption by 2050, the research shows, malnutrition through 2050 and beyond.

Sustainable Solutions Through Plant Science
https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/roots-shoots-blog/blog-item/sustainable-solutions-through-plant-science
Plant science has the potential to generate discoveries that can yield more food and energy for people while preserving our planet’s environment.
Sustainable Solutions Through Plant Science, By the year 2050, agriculture will need to produce 50 percent more food globally, and 100 percent more in developing countries to feed a population predicted to reach nine billion. There is not enough land, water or soil to grow the food we will need without new discoveries. Over 38 percent of the ice-free land on Earth is already used, Carrington, Ph.D., president of the Danforth Center. “This isn’t a 2050 problem, it’s a today

In its new report, Food Security in a World of Growing Natural Resource Scarcity: The Role of Agricultural Technologies, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) examines how 11 agricultural practices and technologies could help farmers around the world improve the sustainability of agriculture. 
the planet. Compared to 2005, consumer demand in 2050 is estimated to drive farmers to produce: 80, greater environmental benefits by 2050. Findings from the book indicate: No-till farming alone, maize yields by 67 percent in 2050. Nitrogen-use efficiency could increase rice crop yields by 22, population growth by 2050, suggest that food insecurity and food prices will increase. For example, climate change could decrease maize yields by as much as 18 percent by 2050–making it even more difficult

On the way to a Green Economy, Farmers may hold the key. Watch this video from Ending Hunger to understand why small-scale farmers may hold the key to saving our Earth, and think about how we can help farmers to grow food more sustainably. Forecasts show we will need 60 percent more food to feed the global population of 2050. “Green economy” is the term being used to describe an economic system that is environmentally friendly and sustainable. In theory, under a green economy
