What is it about?
The food sector is a land-intensive sector and with growing food requirements (due to rising population), it is important to assess and reduce the bio-productive land requirements in this sector. It should be borne in mind that we just have one earth with limited (or rather depleting) bio-productive land available for all our energy and material needs. This article is an attempt in this direction, particularly in a developing country context of India.
