By 2050 the world would be changing at a pace that is unclear. So to feed the number of people by then requires certain approaches. The developed countries has already reached their maximum limit but what persists as a problem is developing countries where the limits are not reached yet. To get the maximum yield environment must be kept in intact as various pest infestations, climatic conditions and environmental hazards makes it rather unsustainable. So the question arises that how we can solve this issue without using biofortified crops? Could there be any crop that qualifies with the changing environment? Moreover could there be any crop that provides enough nutrients even for Vegan’s meal? Well the answer is simple“Sesame”.
