No human right is violated as frequently as the right to food. That almost 800 million people worldwide still do not have enough to eat is one of the greatest scandals of our time. The struggle against hunger is making progress but given the growth in the world’s population, climate change and other challenges, it must be waged even more efficiently in the future. K+S offers solutions in this regard and with its offering of numerous plant nutrients, makes a contribution to achieving higher yields from the limited agricultural land available worldwide.
