- Suggests that the appropriate mix of organic and mineral fertilizers, policy reform, and technical assistance have transformed agricultural practices and output in such nations as Bangladesh, Albania, and Togo. Speaks to the ways in which these changes are being integrated into farming in sub-Saharan Africa, where soils are exhausted of critical nutrients, where population growth is the world's highest, and where starvation is the most common form of death. Claims that this approach to soil nourishment will stop the vicious cycle of human and land poverty and eliminate the possibility of environmental disasters, but does not address alternative methods.
