A View of Food and Agriculture in 1980

Projected growth in population and the general economy suggest larger domestic food requirements in 1980. The major consumption trends of recent years are projected to continue, with per capita consumption rising for beef and poultry but declining for milk. Food use of most crop products may expand about in line with population, but processed fruits and vegetables will continue to displace fresh use. Production is projected to rise substantially for livestock products and for total crops. Crop yields may rise about as rapidly as demand, with acreage needed for crop production in 1980 likely to be near recent levels.
