Land rush and sustainable food security

"Soil anaemia also breeds human anaemia. Micronutrient deficiency in the soil results in micronutrient malnutrition in people, since crops grown on such soils tend to be deficient in the nutrients needed to fight hidden hunger. (...) Managing our soil and water resources in a sustainable and equitable manner needs a new political vision."

M.S. Swaminathan
