Recent estimations by FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) have indicated that food production in the world must remarkably rise in order to keep pace with population growth
The world’s population growth continues to accelerate, adding 57 million people annually. Today, Earth’s population is around 6.8 Billion, and by year 2050 it is supposed to rise to 8.9 Billion, an incease of almost 3 Billions. That is lot of moiuth to feed.
This trend will have a profound effect for years to come on global food production and distribution to developed and emerging markets. Food production will have to rise 70% to keep pace with population forecast.
Agriculture output is dependent on fertile soil, sunlight, water, and cooperative weather. The key catalyst to maximizing output on robust farmland is the additive products, such as fertilizers
It certainly means that agriculture has to become intensive and sophisticated. Although agriculture laid the foundation of the prosperity and industrial developement of so many developed and developing contries, the continuous world-wide expanion of agriculture in virgin lands, dryland and desert areas, as well as the remarkable developement of the green house industry, has inevitably been accompanied by sever problems related to pest management. Such intensification has favored the epidemics developement of many new and unknown plant pests. Consequently, it has necessarily led to the use of an increasing dosage of chemicals which affect negatively the net profit of the growers and the environemental health.The developement of pesticides-resistant species of pathogens and weeds, the need for reduced pesticides levels in food crops, and the often unavailability of commercially acceptable resistant plants, have all emphasized the need for alternative methods for pest and weed control
Designed methodology of managing pests and diseases in agricultural crops and their products without the use of pesticides, very often while there is edible produce on the plant, is our outstanding achievement. Using various technologies of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) has achieved remarkable results on most of the ethable field and fruit crops which have been investigated
