"If it weren't for Agriculture, there would be no culture at all"

From the time of man’s existence, agriculture has been a great part of our evolution. The quest for food and sustainability led the primordial to tame crops and farm them in a coordinated fashion to suit his needs. This process has evolved into modern farming practices that are observed today. Since its discovery, agriculture has allowed humans to settle in metropolises and focus on the development of new technology. As we continue its 10,000-year-long history, a shift back to the sustainability of agriculture will be needed to meet the world’s increasing consumption.

At present, some 11 percent (1.5 billion ha) of the globe's land surface (13.4 billion ha) is used in crop production (arable land and land under permanent crops). This area represents slightly over a third (36 percent) of the land estimated to be to some degree suitable for crop production. More than seven billion individuals worldwide depend on agriculture to support their families. The United Nations has identified agriculture as a global tool to combat malnourishment and poverty across the world. However, there exists a great divide. Despite its importance, agriculture is something those in developed countries often take for granted. Easy and convenient access to food belies the current state of agriculture across the world—where some nations have scarce resources and vast sections of the population remain underfed and malnourished. The present state of agriculture would only leave more people hungry and more arable lands destroyed.

The state of agriculture in today’s world is a major concern to Mighty Yield and other global organizations committed to expanding access to food sustainable agriculture across the world. Eco-friendly agricultural practices are being researched, developed and implemented in our farms to maximize the returns and minimize the risks of agriculture.

Global Grain Production

In the crop year 2017-18, a total of approximately 2.52 billion metric tons of grains were produced worldwide. The most produced grain was Corn, followed by Wheat and Paddy. The below statistic shows the worldwide production of grains of the past five yearly, sorted by type.

Global grain production Producing Vs Required

The world’s population is set to grow considerably over the coming years, albeit at a slower rate than in the past, and with considerable differences across regions. Over the next three decades, the world’s population is forecast to increase by 2 billion people to exceed 9.5 billion people by 2050. Recent estimates indicate that to meet the projected demand, global agricultural production will have to increase by 70 percent from its 2017–2018 levels.

Our contribution to this mighty cause

From day one, Mighty Yield is always escalating food security and contributing enormous add on's for the provision of improved agricultural technology. We have involved and invested in the global growth process to end world hunger through increasing yields in crop production and have reached many milestones in grain production on our journey so far. The following are some of them.
