A country’s capability to feed itself depends on three main factors:
- availability of arable lands
- accessible water
In other words the more people there are in a country, especially in poor countries with limitation in land and water; the fewer resources there are to meet major needs.
About 35 years ago, in 1984, the rate of population growth was slowing everywhere except Africa and some parts of southern Asia but now the situation has change and efforts made toward declining birth rates has been slower than expected.
Population in the world is now (2018-2019) growing at a rate of around 1.07% per year. The current average population growth is estimated at 82 million people per year.
Worldwide, adequate food is produced to feed everyone, yet this food and more important, the technology to produce it do not always reach those who are really in need.
Therefore about 1,000 million people cannot receive enough food to eat and more than 400 million are malnourished. 11 million children under the age of five die from hunger every year.
Scientists try hard to apply the latest technology in order to grow food production by improving crop yield. Recently there has been impressive improvement in food production which has been attributed to the development of improved and disease-resistant varieties of crops that has happened by appropriate use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
Chemical fertilizer (also known as fertiliser) works as a contributory tool to supply one or more plant nutrients which are essential in plants’ growth. Finding the best kind of chemical fertilizer proportionate with the crop’s requirements and using the adequate amount of that chemical fertilizer according to a precise schedule can assist the farmers to boost their crop quality.
Various kinds of chemical fertilizers including nitrogen based fertilizers, phosphorus fertilizers, potassium fertilizers, calcium and magnesium fertilizers and sulphur fertilizer are helping farmers to save money, reduce work and consequently protect community!
Amoot Iranian Trading Company has a great role in this process by providing high quality chemical fertilizers. Amoot company is professional in supplying urea fertilizer which is a nitrogen based fertilizer as well as sulphur fertilizer for potential buyers globally.
