Forestry Versus Agriculture
Abstract:Land utilization economics has broadened to include all major land uses. Agricultural economists have added forestry to their list of alternative uses. The determination of optimum use must be preceded by a careful land classification, for which there are several bases. The author discusses a number of indexes and criteria of optimum land utilization, and suggests that each specialist in land economics co[odiaeresis]dinate his efforts with those of others, rather than to try to show his own specialty to be the most important.
