A secure food supply depends on all of the following, EXCEPT?
- Maintaining healthy soil and water
- Increased use of fertilizer
- Safe distribution of food
The answer of the question above is number 2 which is increased use of fertilizer.
Food security exist when all people, at all time, have physical, social, and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food which meets their dietary needs and food preference for an active and healthy life. Food security comprises several components, including food access, distribution of food, and the stability of the food supply and the use of food.
Our crops growing rely on fertilizers, which are inefficient and unnecessary. The UN food and agricultural organization has discovered that the fertilizers are soaked up by soils, with half being absorbed into the atmosphere and ground water. It means that fertilizer contaminates our environment and damages our ability to produce food due to unhealthy soil.
Maintaining healthy soil and water is a simple way to secure food supply. Keep the environment clean by throwing the rubbish in the place. Recycle the papers and plastics rather than throw them in the disposal. Soil and water are critical to food farming. Future use of water must be efficient and practical, making each drop go as far as possible. Healthy soil and water would produce healthy food.
Improving agricultural biodiversity through sustainable agricultural practices also could alleviate food security. The use of biodiversity could protect communities from food insecurity associated with both crop loss and decreased yield.
