We Need a Complete Change in Agriculture to Feed the Planet

Study results show that the global agriculture system currently overproduces grains, fats, and sugars, while production of fruits and vegetables and protein is not sufficient to meet the nutritional needs of the future global population.

Climate change has made it more difficult to produce foods efficiently and in a great enough quantity to feed the world and its growing population. But how we accomplish this will mean a change in agriculture.According to a new study by researchers at the University of Guelph, after comparing global agricultural production with nutritionists' consumption recommendations - they found a drastic mismatch. The results of their study were published in the journal PLOS ONE last week.“We simply can’t all adopt a healthy diet under the current global agriculture system,” said study co-author Prof. Evan Fraser, holder of the Canada Research Chair in Global Food Security and director of U of G’s Arrell Food Institute.
