The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization proposed a series of measures to improve the security of food supplies in the Muslim world. The report, delivered to a meeting in Istanbul of agricultural ministers from the Organization of the Islamic Conference, suggested ways to increase crop yields such as improved seeds, fertilizers and pesticides. It also urged production incentives to farmers, methods to improve access to food by the poor and monitoring systems to forewarn of crop shortfalls. FAO Director General Eduard Sauma said that agriculture progress is possible in the Islamic world despite wars, civil unrest and natural disasters.
