Abstract : Food production has essentially kept pace with population and urban growth thanks to the expansion of cultivated areas, but also to higher yields. The gradual decline in food production per capita, which is offset by imports, raises the question of the capacity to respond to population increase while the cultivated are a per worker is getting smaller. But the low level of productivity leaves considerable room for progress. (Résumé d'auteur)
