The global population is constantly increasing, and it is expected that global middle class will be 3 times bigger in next 20 years. It is really important to take these population concerns seriously, and come with effective methods to optimize our food production and land use for our future generations. In this article, we talk about the concerns related with Global food grain security.

Changes in food habits and increasing pressure on food production have lead to increase in global food prices. Effect of climate change also plays a key role in production of food. The researchers at International Food Policy Research Institute in Washington believe that climatic changes affects food production in many countries, and in turn impacts global economy. Due to the current imbalance in supply and demand of food production, there has been considerable food inflation. This has led to reduced consumption of grains and higher prices of grain stocks.

The political scenario in Middle East and North African countries has also been affected due to increasing food prices. Russia is one of the major exporters of wheat to these countries, and due to droughts, it experienced poor wheat production. Hence, halting the wheat exports, and in turn, leading to higher prices in Middle East and North African Countries.

Growing urbanization, Heavy industrialization and rapidly decreasing natural resources have also contributed to food shortage and price inflation. China, the most populated country, is a prime example of that. There is no doubt that it has improved its economy in last 2-3 decades, but it has posed some serious questions about the rising population and decreasing food production. To counter this problem, Chinese government planned to produce at least 540 million tones of grains in 5 years, and included in their 12th five year plan (2011-2015)

Many countries are now realizing that investment in agriculture is a step towards ensuring global food grain security. They are now encouraging investors to invest their money in farmlands. Constant investment in this field will ensure the optimization of land, and also cater to the growing demands of food grains efficiently. It is also an exciting prospect for investors, as it can become better a better option than shares, and also helps them gain carbon credits.
