In recognition of this, and the fact that global food supply is increasingly interconnected, this volume takes a world view of dryland production continent by continent. Degraded soils with low water holding capacities along with multiple nutrient deficiencies and depleting ground water - table contributes to low crop yields and further leading to land degradation.
