Mohammad commented on Experience of farming in warm and dry climate

Thank you Kate for introducing The Food Preservation Center to me.
As I know the total area of farm lands in world is about 60 times of urban areas. In other words 40% of earth surface have prepared for agriculture. By the population growth and increasing tendency of meat consumption we will need almost 2 or 3 times of the current farm lands in the next 30 years. 
So I think it is very important to pay attention to the modern agriculture specially in developing countries. In my own country which faces also with the water crisis the agricultural system is still traditional and I think most of farmers are not aware of modern techniques and if they have awareness also they need government investment for implementation of such modern systems.
I think by the modern communication technologies it is possible to share valuable insights and learning experiences between farmers.
