Insect workshop Gives Alternatives to Stop World Hunger
The annual Insect Rearing Workshop at Mississippi State University attracts insect-rearing enthusiasts from all over the world. This year’s event focused on ways to reduce world hunger by raising insects for protein to feed catfish, poultry and even humans. In doing so, researchers argue that people especially in rural protein deficient regions will be able to see benefits towards food production. This event has demonstrated great success and exemplifies how research is crucial for farmers to tackle problems on a domestic and global scale.
