Mexico farmer innovates to boost food output

The food producer has developed more than 480 varieties of wheat, upping production by an estimated 200 million tonnes.

    According to the World Food Programme, hunger kills more people every year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.

    More than 800 million people in the world do not have enough to eat, which is one in nine people.

    For part three of Al Jazeera's "Feeding the World" series, Adam Raney met a food producer in Texcoco, Mexico, who uses innovative methods to increase production.
