By the year 2050, nearly 80% of the earth’s population will reside in urban centers. Applying the most conservative estimates to current demographic trends, the human population will increase by about 3 billion people during the interim. An estimated 109 hectares of new land (about 20% more land than is represented by the country of Brazil) will be needed to grow enough food to feed them, if traditional farming practices continue as they are practiced today. At present, throughout the world, over 80% of the land that is suitable for raising crops is in use.
Some Of The Reasons :
- Preparation for the future;
- Conservation of resources i.e. Soil-Less Farming;
- Increased crop production;
- Protection from weather-related problems;
- Halting mass extinction;
- Impact on human health;
- Urban growth;
- Energy sustainability.
