image of The State of Food and Agriculture 1953

This year's edition of The State of Food ad Agriculture is split into two parts. The first part provides a world and regional review and outlook, as well as an in depth review by commodities. The second part provides an overview of longer term prospects with a focus on general world and regional trends.




In submitting the annual review of the world food and agricultural situation for 1952/53, I have adopted the procedure of dividing the report into two parts. The first part, presented in this docinnent, deals with the progress and problems of agriculture, fisheries and forestry in the past year, and with the immediate outlook for the year ahead. The second part will be a review of governments' longer-term plans and programs of agricultural production, and an attempt to evaluate their probable effect on, world agricultural production and trade, and on levels of food consumption during the next four or five years. This second part will be completed after the conclusion of the regional meetings which FAO is holding the sumiller of 1953 in time for presentation to the Conference in November.
