Millennium Fellowship Project: Agriculture solutions to Zero hunger project
There is issue more explosive than corona virus pandemic, unfortunately the world doesn't consider because it doesn't directly affect all categories but kills millions of people, that's HUNGER! this is what life is like for 815 million of children that suffers from malnutrition today. I believe one day nobody will be left hungry. Agriculture solutions to zero hunger project will train, encourage and assist small and large farmers about conservation agriculture practices such as zero or minimum tillage, use of cover crops and crop rotation, in return this will lead to zero hunger as is there will increase in food production. Briefly, agriculture solutions to zero hunger project is ongoing project that should be expected to change lives of many people around the world. ZERO HUNGER !
