Posted on August 25, 2022

Apocalypse, similar to its Biblical term is defined as a global event, causing mass extinction of life and humankind. The causes for this range from drastic changes in climate to nuclear war or asteroid collision. As result most of the Earth’s surface becomes uninhabitable.  Assuming that at least part of the human race would find a way to survive the apocalypse, it will be isolated in some kind of refuge, limited in both space and natural resources, and characterized by living conditions, quite different from the contemporary Earth. Obviously, ensuring food supplies for the population would be a major challenge along with ensuring proper health status and sufficient energy. The current paper deals with the challenges in front of agriculture in such a post-apocalyptic world.
