The rise in food prices of 2008 was followed by a fall, but prices are still high and indeed rising again. As a result there are now over 1 billion chronically hungry people in the world. Additional to this challenge, we have to increase food production by 70-100% by 2050. There is much high level rhetoric and, at the grass roots, many laudable projects, but we need agricultural development that takes ideas and experience to scale. I believe we need a new ‘Doubly Green Revolution’ involving innovative and imaginative applications of technologies and financing.
