There is need for more food to be produced with less water and land in a sustainable way, without any adverse effect on human or its environment. The increasing growing population, changing diets, and the unquenchable thirst of agro-energy put increasing pressure on the limited land, water and environmental resources globally. This is no other area this more alarming than in the poor and developing countries.
Perhaps, nations where this bites are more felt have to act in other to rescue the situation in the future. However, this could be an opportunity for a develop country like Finland to invest in research in agricultural development through biotechnology with a focus on attaining result in a highly sustainable way. This may lead to a breakthrough in a future that will be uncertain for the develop nations as companies in the developed nations are shipping jobs abroad due to low cost of production.
A sustainable breakthrough in scientific advancement in agricultural biotechnology will not only yield improved agricultural product with quality, but also supports the increasing human demand for a variety of foods. Genetic manipulation of the plants by plant breeding has to be done in a more sustainable way to lead to a greener revolution. “There after many countries such as India and China achieved prosperity through self sufficiency in food grains production. After this, increase in production has slowed down forcing the bio technologists to find out new methods of food production under molecular breeding”. (Business Day)
If Finland attains a breakthrough in this area, there will not only be a food security in Finland only but in nations around the world. A research and development that will lead to a non sustainable production as never seen before will be important in achieving success. Environmentalist can even be involved in the drive to experience the result of the sustainable attainment.
