Food security has been defined as the state of having reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. The need not only to maintain the current level of food production but also to greatly increase it to cope with the growing global population is a substantial challenge. The need to have more efficient food production systems in place is an absolute requirement as the amount of land mass available to produce food is in fact decreasing due to issues of growing urbanization and severe climate change.
