For over two hundred years, many scholars, such as Thomas Malthus, have predicted that human populations would inevitably outgrow the planet’s capacity to produce life-sustaining sustenance (The Malthusian Theory of Population). Malthus theorized that with the exponential growth of the human population compounded by the limitations in linear production of food, mass famine was unavoidable. While this concern has been paramount in philosophical and practical discussion, human invention has stifled the predicted global scarcity. The ‘Green Revolution’ that brought forth high-yielding varieties of crops, synthetic fertilizers, agrichemicals, irrigation adaptations and mechanization became the answer to food insecurity. Large expanses of monocultured cropland and synthetic fertilizer/pesticide-dependent agriculture practices, coupled with constraining producer profit margins, have emerged as a serious impediment to the successful and sustainable production of food. As pests develop resistance to many chemistries, the market demands more environmental stewardship and the rising tide of food safety concerns within the food production industries, the challenge producers face today is how to best operate in a profitable manner that aligns with ecologically sustainable practices and human health security.
As human innovation staved off, through the Green Revolution, the famine predictions of yesteryear, today, the same innovative approaches will allow producers to meet the need for environmental stewardship, profitability, resistance management and food safety concerns. Many companies are striving to meet these needs by developing new products with minimal impact on the environment that provide important efficacious performance, while minimizing the development of resistant pests. Moreover, some companies are gearing towards the advent of specific products and equipment to safely guard the post-harvest food supply from human health pathogens and spoilage organisms without residue, thus aligning with consumer safety and environmental sustainability. A company that is motivated and successfully implemented products and equipment to help meet these needs is BioSafe Systems.
