Feeding The Planet: UK Chief Scientist on Food Production and Requirements

http://in.reuters.com/resources/r/?m=02&d=20100707&t=2&i=148581547&w=460&fh=&fw=&ll=&pl=&r=img-2010-07-07T162318Z_01_NOOTR_RTRMDNC_0_India-499443-1 A set of 21 papers addressing global food requirements and what needs to be done in terms of food production technology were published today by the Royal Society.
