Abstract

Food problems -- the efficient production or procurement of food and its appropriate distribution among members of society -- are problems endemic to mankind. Yet the nature and dimensions of these problems have been changing over time. As economic systems have developed, specialization has increased; and this has led to increased interdependences of rural and urban areas, of agricultural and nonagricultural sectors, and of nations

This book focuses on the interactions between resources, technologies, and environment in agricultural systems and on their consequences for long-run agricultural development. It presents development of some methodological approaches as weLL as case studies of differing regions using systems analysis. The case studies cover a wide variety of countries and economic systems, and provide examples of dealing with an extensive range of issues concerning sustainability of agriculture.
