A Solution for World Hunger

The world’s population will surpass 9 billion in less than 40 years. Those people will need food. Most will want to consume rice as a major part of their diet. This demand can only be met by significantly increasing crop productivity. In fact, by 2050, worldwide rice productivity will need to increase by as much as 70% just to keep up. SmartRice® is currently delivering more rice using less land and other resources. SmartRice® is one of the crops necessary to help satisfy the world’s growing appetite.
