Abstract

This study compares the effects that different technologies have on crop yields and resource use, particularly arable area, water, and nutrients. By modeling technology-induced changes in crop yields, the analysis also helps to explain how the mix of technology may influence the global food market in terms of changes in food prices and trade flows, as well as calorie availability, in particular for developing countries.
