The total land available to farm globally is only one quarter of the land available. With the current world population currently rising, standing at over 6.6 billion people in August 2008, a need to produce larger food quantities is an ever increasing pressure to scientists and farmers. The options available to support demands are to produce crops that have higher yields grown on land we currently have available, crops with increased tolerance to abiotic stresses, such as saline toxicity and crops to reclaim land that has been damaged by human use such as heavy metal contaminated land.
