Food prices are broadly stable amid record cereal inventories. Addressing this question causally requires observing a valid counterfactual, i. Due to challenges in consistently distinguishing between pasture classes between years, well-maintained and overgrown pasture areas were then merged into a ‘pasture’ class.

Conversion of agrianuzl forest and secondary vegetation areas was limited, but often near existing oil palm development. Given historical links between deforestation and oil palm development worldwide, questions remain whether Brazil would be successful in decoupling its oil palm growth from deforestation and thus promote oil palm production without imperiling Brazil’s progress in reducing Amazonian deforestation. Hinrichsen N Commercially available alternatives to palm oil Lipid Technol.

Such external initiatives should therefore be considered when designing zoning programs to constrain conversion.

Power A G Ecosystem services and agriculture: Should labor costs increase in other producing countries, as anticipated in Malaysia Byerlee et al cthe relative cost disadvantage may diminish. Oxford University Press Oil palm production and supply chains. Meyfroidt et al reported that previously cleared lands are favored by developers when commodity crops require access to infrastructure.


The report highlights 39 countries that are in need of external assistance for food. Sankey diagrams are used to track material flows Schmidt including agricultural supply chains Godar et aland to depict magnitudes of relationships between inputs as they are transformed.

Hecht S B Environment, development, and politics: Whereas interviewees suggested that Brazilian production is not considered cost-competitive in CPO commodity trade, premiums for certified deforestation-free products have helped offset, though not eliminate, cost disadvantages. However, many respondents also indicated the geographical extent of suitable areas delineated by the ZAE and similar models appears too optimistic.

See SI table 7 for full conversion pathways and indirect conversion. Delayed payments from some buyers with few alternatives to negotiate, or high transaction costs for multiple small buyers- Reliance on fertilizer imports, tied to forex fluctuations- High production costs often render domestic product uncompetitive with imported substitutes.

R Core Team R: Gunarso et al Areas identified as secondary vegetation appeared visually distinct from the darker-colored, heterogeneous, and roughly-textured regions typically associated with primary intact forest areas SI section 2. Investigations were also carried out to assess the effect of silicon on Diatraea saccharalis infestation.

Limited past deforestation trends do not imply deforestation will not occur in the future should, for example, cleared lands become economically unavailable, or non-certified oil palm prices increase sufficiently to induce additional production. For areas under oil palm cultivation inseven mosaicked Landsat 5 scenes from each of, and were used to determine the historical land use of the palm areas, supplemented with high-resolution agrianjal imagery available from Google Earth.

Cassava, rice, and beans remain an important source of local smallholder production and consumption Nahum and Santos As oil palm expansion doubled between these two periods, oil palm increased on both the intensive and extensive margins: An additional accuracy assessment was conducted using randomly selected points across the study area in areas classified as oil palm; in areas not classified as oil palmusing the Google Earth annual LANDSAT composite gallery and available high-resolution imagery SI section 2.


Global production of all major wood products grew for the sixth consecutive year inwhile trade in wood products decreased slightly, according to new data published by FAO today. Agropalma’s production average Agropalma However, due to the low infestation, the effects of silicon on the insect incidence could not be determined.

Nutritional status of yellow passion fruit submitted to nitrogen sources by fertigation.

Wood production sees growth driven by housing and green energy markets. Produtividade e Sustentabilidade www.

Images from Landsat 5 and 8 were selected for maximum image quality; thus, images generally span June—October, during the region’s dry period SI, section 2. Kongsager R and Reenberg A Contemporary land-use transitions: The historical classification focused on four land use types: Despite potential for oil palm development without forest conversion, historically oil palm development has involved clearing of primary or secondary forests.

In addition, three oil palm areas were undetected because of either cloud cover or overgrown roads Swartos Meyfroidt P et al Multiple pathways of commodity crop expansion in tropical forest landscapes Environ.
