  1. Gathering all the leaders in any food and agriculture organizations to discuss about an important topic about food security can be a great way of enhancing the quality farming and an important thing in terms of supplying the people a safe and better quality of foods. It is a proof how things like this are handled properly. Great ideas from this different minds can be a key to the success in farming. Kudos to all of you!
