Food crisis is one of the biggest problems we are facing today. Last year I read a magazine that many farmers are now abandoning their farmlands .One of the farmer said farming is no longer profitable we cant not survive if we just rely our income in our farms and most of us just go to the cities to find other jobs to support income for our family. He adds that the farmers got always problem cause by impletion rate the very high price farm inputs such as fertilizers and other chemical use in the farm. And another problems they are facing are the pest infestation, weather condition due to climatic changes that affect their crops and animals. If the government will not make an action to solve this problem there will be a global famine.
