Causes Of Food Shortages

Causes of food shortage in our neighbourhood village can be attributed to factors such as the rate of population growth, poor land use and agricultural practises, the adverse weather conditions such as floods and long periods of drought, lack of funds to purchase required farm inputs, rural-urban migration and poor and inadequate storage facilities. All these problems can be hindered by the following; more land should be brought under irrigation and some of the waste and marshy marshy land be reclaimed, farmers need to be educated on how to control diseases and pests and on better storage practises
