In 2011, the world is waiting for the food crisisIn 2011, the world is waiting for the food crisis. This prediction does FAO — Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Expected increase in prices for many products. Sugar will rise in price by a third, the price of wheat will increase by 41%, corn price will rise by 47%, according to NTV.

FAO food index has now risen to the level of 2007-2008, it was the previous crisis. Index reduces to a common denominator the price of grain, meat, dairy products, oil and sugar.

Are a few reasons for this phenomenon. Chief among them — is climate change: drought and flood catastrophe. Plus biofuels: recycle it agricultural products more profitable than just selling, and this leads to a deficiency.

And coming from North Africa a new and very unpleasant kind of stem rust — a disease of wheat. In this regard, FAO calls to dramatically increase crop. When prices are high, farmers will not go for nothing.
