A recent report from Agro-ecology and the Right to Food says that organic and sustainable small-scale farming could double food production in the parts of the world where hunger is the biggest issue.

Indeed this has been covered by others who have stated and proven that greater yields can be had by going back to organic or natural farming methods. We have been sold a bill of goods to keep the money pouring into Monsanto and other Corporate hands. At the same time our soils are being depleted, our foods are more toxic and less nutrients within them.......this abuse of our lands is causing more hunger instead of less.

We need to get back to growing locally around this world and we also cut back on the overuse of fossil fuels in the process. Flying foods all over the world is destroying the livings of many people as well as causing this fuel use to rise. As the oil becomes less, the cost will rise being added onto the purchase price of the foods. It is so stupid to grow something in one Country, fly it to another to be canned, and then fly it to a 3rd to be sold.

Keep in mind that 71% of Russia's population works those plots. The U.S. has 2.2 million farmers which is just 2% of our population.
More than 21 million American workers (15 percent of the total U.S. workforce) produce, process and sell the nationís food and fiber.

How ironic. This was exactly how Russia produced food prior to the Russian Revolution.
