The world population of humans has crossed the figure of 7 billion, and it has been increasing at a fast pace ever since. Moreover, even though the size of the population is growing, but the area of the landmass is the same. This contrasting scenario makes it difficult to meet the food requirements of the world at the same pace as of population growth. Feeding such an enormous population of humans is a growing cause of concern for the whole world.
Adding extra burden on the landmass to produce more by use of uncertified agricultural practices has severely affected the nutritional value of the food products. These unscientific habits not only affect the production quality but also degrade the soil structure for a long time.
The adverse effect on production capacity is not only because of the population explosion but also caused by unfavorable climate changes. Global warming and increased pollution in the environment are among the main reasons behind such unfavorable changes in the climate. The world needs science-backed solutions to tackle the complex problems of low agricultural productivity and the ill effects of climate change on agricultural production.
The only visible solution to overcome the challenge of low agricultural productivity is the use of appropriate industry standards for agricultural production. Experts frame industry standards after a series of scientific experiment and over prolonged periods of scientific research.
These standards mention the scientific techniques of food production to achieve higher production efficiency. The standards also guide about the quality benchmarks for other supplementary factors contribution in the process of food production. For example, agriculture machines ISO standards states the ideal parameters for agricultural equipment.
Following appropriate agriculture and food industry standards can help the world population to cultivate sufficient food production to meet their requirements. Not only do these standards provide knowledge about the right agricultural practices but also they guide about making the process of food production more cost-effective, convenient and efficient.
