To Feed Ten Billion, Crop Yields Have to Rise

ISSN

The world’s population reached seven billion in 2011 and could reach almost ten billion by 2050.1 Over 98% of this growth will occur in less developed regions, primarily in Africa and Asia. Most of the food production there depends on smallholder farmers.
Globally, calorie demand will increase even faster than population. As people’s income grows, so does their demand for higher value food such as meat and dairy products. Satisfying the rising meat demand will require more animal feed, particularly corn and soybean. Producing one kilo of meat requires much
more than one kilo of feed, so demand for these cereals will rise even faster than if per capita meat demand remained stable.
