By Ronald G. Ridker; William D. Watson | Go to book overview
and on the down side, can be substantial. Because of declines both in stocks of food grains and in the availability of surplus farmland, the world is more vulnerable to such fluctuations, particularly on the down side, than it was just a decade ago. This situation can be improved through the development and adroit management of adequate reserve stocks and the development of sufficient new farmland to serve as a buffer in case of production shortfalls. But these are issues that lie beyond the scope of this analysis. The other problem pertains to environmental and ecological concerns associated with the projected levels of farm output and land use, topics to which we turn in the next two chapters.
