Yield and Production Gaps

The comparison between simulated potential yields and production (see the “Suitability and Potential Production”) with observed yield and production of crops currently grown, provides yield and production gap information for the analysis of major causes of rural poverty (e. g., lack of agricultural inputs, poor market accessibility, inappropriate cropping systems, inadequate crop management, year-to-year variations in climatic conditions, occurrence of natural hazards such as floods and droughts).[...]
