Interrelationships between spatial variability and levels of national grain productivity in the USSR, 1955-1974

Auteur :
BERENTSEN, W. H.

Description :
High levels of regional variability in year-to-year grain yields in the USSR are negatively correlated with national levels of productivy. Despite reasonably good improvements in grain productivity in the west, the Soviet Union continues to suffer from low and fluctuating levels of national grain production and productivity owing in part to continued dependence on the unreliable wheat lands of the east. The apparently high cost/benefit ratio of investments in these marginal agricultural areas illustrates the dilemmas the Soviets face in simultaneously achieving improved levels of food availability and agricultural self-sufficiency.
