What are scientists trying to do to help with the world food shortages?

    One of the most effective ways for science to help combat food shortage is the development of high-yield crops. This continues in the tradition of the “father of the green revolution”, Nobel Prize winning scientist Norman Borlaug, who died on September 13. Dr. Borlaug is credited with saving millions from starvation with development of wheat and rice varietals that yielded up to six times more crops. The new goal is to find similar crops that have high yields, high nutritional value and are resistant to pests without the use of harmful pesticides or fertilizers. Other considerations with increasing crop yields are the proper and conservational use of water and the education and government support of poor farmers.
