Funded by the National Science Foundation

In terms of officially reported output, Russian agriculture is now 40% below its former level on the eve of the current economic reform (1990).

That low efficiency and poor outcomes have been the scourge of the Russian countryside irrespective of dominant socio-economic order may, if only in part, derive from the neglect of objective constraints on agricultural development.

Juxtaposing and explaining these constraints, which deal with natural environment, excessive land under cultivation, and demographics, is the focus of this NSF-funded project
