"Half of the uncultivated land of the world, or some 80 million hectars (ha), lies in the humid tropics, where the climatic environment offers a high potential for crop production. If only 2 per-cent of this area were put into cultivation with good management practices, enough food could be produced to feed the present population of Latin America" (Committee on Tropical Soils, National Academy of Sciences, 1972).
