World Agriculture Journal Winter 2012/2013

17.01.2013

Features an article by Agricultural Economist Professor Sir John Marsh entitled Economics of GM crops in developing and developed economies (pp. 6-7)

"This journal exists because the world community faces a growing challenge to increase food supply at a rate that matches the demands of a growing and richer population. Three articles in this edition of World Agriculture address important aspects of this problem. Two deal with the role of biotechnology in increasing productivity whilst protecting the environment; the third demonstrates how increased population pressure leads to the degradation of fragile farming areas."
