Land quality and land degradation affect agricultural productivity and food security, but quantifying these relationships has been difficult. Data is extremly limited and outcomes are sensitive to the choices that farmers make. The contributors toMoreLand quality and land degradation affect agricultural productivity and food security, but quantifying these relationships has been difficult. Data is extremly limited and outcomes are sensitive to the choices that farmers make. The contributors to this book - including soil scientists, geographers and economists - analyse data on soils, climate land cover, agricultural inputs and outputs and a variety of socio-economic factors to provide new insights into three key issues: the extent to which differences in agricultural productivity across countries- how farmers responses to differences or changes in land quality are influenced by economic, environmental and institutional factors and whether land degradation over time threatens productivity growth and food security at local, regional and global levels.
