Abstract

The world human population has continued to increase over the years, this has affected availability and
shorten supply of food. Food security challenge is bound to happen as the world human population is expected to reach
9 billion by the year 2050 if food production rate did not double its current production rate. The problem is
compounded by the reduction in area of arable land available for farming and food production due to
urbanization, salinity, land degradation, desertification, natural and man-made disasters, and climate change
