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.



General features of the decade

Agriculture's performance of its basic task of supplying food for the expanding population has come under more anxious scrutiny during the past decade than ever before. The implications of the accelerating population growth in the developing countries and of the unsatisfactory nutritional levels of the bulk of their populations are now widely realized. There is also a growing understanding of agriculture's wider role as a key factor in economic development.
