In addition to the usual review of the recent world food and agriculture situation, each issue of The State of Food and Agriculture from 1957 has included one or more special studies of problems of longer-term interest. This year's edition focuses on the second postwar decade.



The producer

In reviewing the position during the last decade of producers of agricultural, fishery and forest products, it is necessary to draw a sharp distinction between those in developed and in developing countries. In most of the developed countries there has tended to be a decline not only in agriculture's share in the total population and national income but also in the absolute numbers engaged in agriculture. In the developing countries the fall in the share of agriculture in the economy as a whole has generally been much slower, and in almost all of them the agricultural population has continued to grow in absolute terms.
