Recent United Nations (UN) projections indicated that the world’s population is expected to grow to almost 10 billion by 2050, boosting agricultural demand. According to FAO, the need to sustainably improving agricultural productivity to meet increasing demand is essential, as they estimated the production of food and other agricultural products to increase by 50 percent between 2012 and 2050. Urbanization is impacting the food consumption patterns as well. Higher urban income tends to increase demand for processed foods, as well as animal-source food, fruits and vegetables, as part of a broad dietary transition. Not to forget that between now and 2050, the additional land needed for agricultural production is estimated at just under 100 million ha.
One of the most significant threats to healthy crop production is crop nutrient deficiencies resulting from poor soil health. Plant health is a tremendously complex area, and many growers understand much of it is rooted in the soil. A quality growing media with the essential nutrients required for plant growth can be critical to success. Fortunately, Kemin has a crop health product that can help. If your crop production is lower than expected — or if it's where it should be but you know it can do even better — turn to Kemin.
