I am from the Agricultural Research Council in South Africa and I have to
agree with Dr. G. K. Veeresh about food being in commercial storage from
production by a small percentage of the population while rural people are
hungry.

Poverty will only be alleviated if and when we realize the seriousness of
hunger in the developing world. We want to improve technology to increase
production forgetting that the poor farmer cannot afford our technology.
When people are hungry they only think about food and how to survive and
nothing else.

Regards,

Elize Lundall-Magnuson
