A large inequality of food production and economic level development exists in the World. In result, there is on one side deficit of the food production and hunger, on the other side constant overproduction and beyond-norm consumption. It is necessary for the highly developed countries to support the economically backward countries - via long term complex activities (scientific-technology and financial ones) and organizations. There are huge reserves of the food production in the World which should be utilize in the future. The food market is shaped more and more by the globalisation process. There is no danger of lack of the food in the World but it is a must to improve and equalize the level of production and allocation of the food among the World regions. Agriculture is the primary and one of the oldest areas of human activity. Produces food of plant and animal produce raw materials for many industries. Rely agriculture on biological processes distinguishes it from other economic sectors.
