Paths and limits of agricultural growth

Benoit-Cattin M., Dorin B.. 2008. In : EAAE 2008, XIIth Congress of the European Association of Agricultural Economists, 26 - 29 August 2008, Ghent, Belgium. s.l. : s.n., 5 p.. EAAE 2008. 12, 2008-08-26/2008-08-29, Ghent (Belgique).

The growth of agriculture and its ability to feed growing populations rests on land and labour productivities. We estimated these partial productivities in food kilocalories for most countries of the world, and discussed their evolution over the past 40 years. Very contrasted productivity paths are shown between the 6 macro-regions of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment.
