Q & A with GHI Executive Director, Margaret Zeigler 

“Q. The GAP Report has a strong focus on agricultural productivity.  What is this and why is it important in agriculture and to ensure food security?


A. 
Productivity itself is not simply producing more food, or even achieving higher yields.  Productivity growth – a measure of output per unit of input – allows more to be produced while maximizing the use and impact of scarce resources.  Productivity in agriculture lowers the cost for producers, helping farmers succeed in today’s competitive business cycle, and helps lower the cost of food for consumers.”
