Zusammenfassung

Currently, there is a world population of 7.2 billion people, with the tendency to rise. Every minute 150 people around the globe are born, which adds up to a total of 22.000 people a day and more than 80 million people a year. In the year 2050 an assumption indicated that we will be sharing our globe with approximately 9.6 billion humans. In average, this calculates to a necessary food production increase of 30% in order to cover the food consumption of the growing world population by 2050 [1].
