At this writing, the world population counter on the website of BioResource International (BRI) reads 7,109,797,785 (but only for half a second). To feed a projected world population of 9.1 billion by 2050, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations estimates food production will need to increase by 70 percent.
