The Future of the North American Granary

Edited by C. Ford Runge
Iowa State University Press, 1987
238 pp.

Among the many books on the problems of American agriculture this volume stemming from a conference at the University of Minnesota is of exceptional interest because of its scope. There are good papers on the usual international and domestic factors that have caused trouble, plus a comparison with Canada on some points. Nearly three-quarters of the book concerns the future and deals with technological developments in biogenetics, information and finance, resources of land and water, environmental considerations and possible changes in climate.
