Rethinking Food Policy (from Earth Policy News)

The article starts by saying that China’s food productivity increased because of a move from agricultural collectives to family farm models, which I hoped would set the scene for a policy analysis of localisation of food production. However the remainder of the article is a macro analysis of breeding early varieties to allow double cropping. I’m usually a fan of Lester Brown & the Earth Policy Institute, but this article is sadly lacking.
