Global population already hit 7.7 billion mark; another million-feeding mouth are being added every 14 months in average. This aggressive population growth doesn’t seem to slowing anytime sooner. More population has high demand for consumption of natural resources, but the real concern is, can our earth be able to withstand this population pressure? Clear indication on steadily increasing income elasticity of demand for food is indicating towards the verge of catastrophic failure of human civilization as earth hospitality may not remain the same. To amply feed the global population we need to expand our framework on current agriculture practices and food distribution network. Poverty, food security and food safety are major challenges to address. Agriculture innovation and technology adaptation are our vital tools for the change. These must be supported by modernization prescribed on scientific ground. The increasing demand for adequate and safer food can be addressed by smart agriculture, green revolution and sustainable agriculture aided by mechanization. To ensure food for all advanced tools like biotechnology and agrigenomics can also be used.
