Food Security is Key to Agricultural Investing — Here’s Why

Food Security is Key to Agricultural Investing — Here’s Why

What is food security, and how does it relate to agricultural investing? For investors interested in making a profit — and a difference in the world — those two questions are worth answering.

Investors may be unfamiliar with the term food security, especially when combined with agricultural investing, but it’s simple to define. The UN Committee on World Food Security describes food security as “the condition in which all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.”

As that definition shows, there are both nutritional and economic aspects to food security. In fact, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has outlined four dimensions of food security: food utilization, physical availability of food, economic and physical access to food and stability of the first three factors over time.

Fertilizers: The Difference Between Potash and Phosphate

Fertilizers: The Difference Between Potash and Phosphate

Both potash and phosphate are used to produce fertilizers, which are becoming increasingly important as demand for food grows.

However, potash and phosphate play different roles in crop growth and cannot be used interchangeably. Each has different applications designed for the specific requirements of a particular crop, climate, soil type or topography.

Investors interested in fertilizer companies should be aware of the difference between potash and phosphate. This knowledge can help guide investment decisions and can ultimately lead to increased profitability.

Why Food Security is a Resource Supply Chain Opportunity

There was a time when the food supply chain was at once simple, localized and cyclical. But those days are far behind us. As the world's population has continued to increase, demand for food has far outstripped the production capacity of simple agriculture.

Today, the food supply chain is incredibly complex, with multiple supply chain layers, billions of actors and trillions of transactions. Unfortunately, owing at least partially to this complexity, it is also increasingly unstable and increasingly prone to either disruption or interruption. Food insecurity is a growing problem in both the developed and underdeveloped worlds, and it has grown exponentially worse due to recent events.
