Singapore seeks answers to rising food prices:

High food prices are a major issue for Singapore, which imports more than 90% of its produce, and has to feed a population that is now in excess of five million. But Singapore, which measures just over 700 sq km, was not always a net importer of food. In the 1960s and 1970s there were about 20,000 farms on the island and it was self-sufficient in the production of poultry, egg and pork. However, as development sped up, most of Singapore's arable land was used for infrastructure projects such as housing, offices and roads. Today, there are only a handful of farms left, most of which are located in agrotechnology parks that take up less than 2% of Singapore's total available land.
