The modern community is provided a variety of technics and technologies for successful agricultural development. However, the problem of starvation has become very actual in some parts of the world these days. This essay will discuss the root cause why this issue arises which is unpredictable natural disasters, which cause irreversible crop damage, followed by an analysis of the necessity of farm infrastructure reformationto improve the situation in the long run.
The evident cause of food resources deficiencyin some countries is floods, drought and hurricanes possibility. To put it differently, not only dothesenatural phenomena bring destructive consequences to buildings and facilities, but theyalso influence disastrously the farm animals and crops.

In other words, by involvinggovernmental funds in creation of protective structures against natural disasters, farmers can avoid a harmful influence of thesecatastrophes. Moreover,on noaccount should the sufficient knowledge of geography and probable climatic hazardous areas be ignored. For example, due to the hot climate the highly technological irrigation system is used in Israel to prevent undesirable effects of this weather on the rural economy.
In conclusion, one of the main causes of products insufficiency in some regions is natural conditions unpredictability. The battle against global starvation will be lost without appropriate attitude to agricultural improvement.
