This year’s edition focuses on accelerating agricultural research in developing countries.



Review by regions

Growth in the volume of production slowed down in 1971 for the second consecutive year in the industrial countries of the region. At about 3 percent, the growth rate was much lower than during the last decade when it averaged 4.5 percent. Decline in activity was quite general notwithstanding pronounced differences from one country to another.
