Food security necessary to prevent peoples’ backlash: NAFED chief

Abstract:
"We have sought the help of nanoscience and nanotechnology experts like P. Somasundaran who can help India ensure food security by increasing crop yields and reducing consumption."

Somasundaran, who teaches at Columbia University in the US, visited India last month and expressed his willingness to chair a task force being set up by NAFED on use of science and nanotechnology to boost agricultural production and prevent damage to food grain.

Referring to NAFED's decision to distribute high-yielding seeds developed by the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) to farmers, he said "high yielding will stop the decline in agricultural production and can ensure food security".
