Trends in population growth, food production and fertilizer use in developing countries



Trends in population growth, food production and fertilizer use in developing countries



Kali Briefe 16(6): 301-311



Despite sharp population growth in the 1970s many developing countries managed to increase food production sufficiently to increase production per head. There were considerable regional differences. While the supply position in Africa deteriorated over the last 10 years there was a slight improvement in Latin America and in Asia. The man/land ratio in Asia is worse than in Africa or Latin America and they also have less reserves of undeveloped land.
