This paper presents global projections of supply, demand, and trade for root and tuber crops to the year According to the baseline scenario, roots and tubers will decline in relative economic importance only marginally vis-à-vis the other major food and feed crops over the next three by: Many of the developing world's poorest farmers and food insecure people are highly dependent on root and tuber (R&T) crops for food, nutrition, and cash income. Hence, an improved understanding of the production, utilization, trade, and estimated future economic importance of R&T crops has potentially far-reaching implications for investments in agricultural research at both the Cited by: Book review: Global Workshop on Root and Tuber Crops Workshop on Root and Tuber C June Outlook on agriculture.
