Kill The Hunger

In the cradle of hunger hunger kill my child was. With blood of onion you nursing. Miguel Hernandez. You can alleviate the hunger in the countries of third world currently are fashionable voices tinged Malthusian which puts in doubt the survival of planet Earth by lack of food, and that this is going to perish in short space of time by lack thereof, due to an excess of world population. However, hear fewer voices that denounce the agrarian policy of the countries richest which penalizes certain food productions, others controlled by monopolies, and finally prevent poor countries having access to modern production techniques. The European Union itself is covered with glory to encourage the set-aside of land and subsidize its cultivation or support with strong quantities per hectare to those lands which leave from being agricultural; the boot of vineyards, raw material without thinking that with the grape juice you can feed a lot of people; also fosters citrus startup, without thinking it contain a lot of vitamins; also their destruction is short so that the price is not reduced below a certain level.

By what refers to cereals, dried fruits, rapeseed, maize, sunflower, etc., you are encouraged its cultivation being the EU deficit in such products, but not has been designed to encourage the production of olive oil in the producer countries, such as Spain, Italy, Greece and Portugal. Really, where the absurdities of the European policies are most noticeable is in the subject of milk, because it is giving priority to the sacrifice of cows producing and preventing that surpluses are transformed into dust and distributed where most lack do. Here is the current dilemma: a part we are told that there is hunger in poor countries and another foster policies that tend to produce less food. It seems as if the richest countries were committed to ending poverty, ending with the poor. Experts believe that even if the soils are not good quality can alleviate hunger in third world countries using means of modern crops and improved seeds, along with the promotion of new lands for irrigation and a range of subsidiaries techniques. With rare exceptions the production per hectare has grown enormously in the past twenty years on the planet.

Thus, countries such as Korea, Cameroon; Mali and Egypt, according to reliable data from FAO, possessing large amount of little fertile land, have achieved significant rates of increase in cereal production. It is estimated that the use of high technology in third world countries would allow an increase of crops which, in general terms, can reach a fifty percent on the previous productions. However, should add another important factor, as it is the conservation of foods, and which have a not-too-distant case, as in Russia, where a high percentage of cereal production was lost for lack of a good network of storage silos. All this needs to push Governments to introduce cultivation techniques appropriate, create specialized infrastructure and invest in research and technology. Only effective policies United to the latest technologies and a good network marketing can be released to the land of one of the worst scourges: hunger. And is that, as the poet said: hunger is the first knowledge: / hungry is the first thing you learn. Francisco Arias Solis Si you want peace, work for justice.
