Research Highlights

The purpose of this series of country briefs is to provide a comprehensive and standardized view of agricultural characteristics integrat- ed with socioeconomic variables across countries.

Our new spatial output indexes show that 16 to 21 percent of the increase in U.S. corn output over the 128 years beginning in 1879 was attributable to spatial movement in production.

We estimate global wheat losses over the past 50 years absent investments in research to limit impacts of stem rust and discuss how this can inform decisions about “right-sizing” research investments.
