Exponential Growth in World Population to Favor the Market

The global population is growing at a prolific pace and agricultural practices, processes, and technologies will need to rapidly catch up to feed the ever-increasing number of people. Projections released by the Food and Agriculture (FAO) show that the world population is set to spike by nearly 33% over the next three decades, leading to the addition of roughly 2.3 billion people. To meet the nutrition requirements of the growing numbers, the FAO estimates that overall food production will have to increase by 70%, with production in developing nations needing to double from current levels.

NH3 will be a critical element in enabling governments to boost farm yields, as this compound is the most essential ingredient in making fertilizers.
