Title
The spatial aggregation of organic farming in England and its underlying environmental correlates
Description
We are entering a period of unprecedented change for agriculture, driven by changes in the global supply of, and demand for, food. These drivers include: (i) increase in the global human population by c. 40% by mid-century (UNPD 2006); (ii) changes in diet from crop-based to meat-based as countries develop (e.g. in India and China; FAO 2002; Pingali & Khwaja 2004); (iii) climate change affecting crop-suitability through changes in mean and extremes of temperature and water availability (e.g. Lobell et al. 2008); (iv) non-food crops (e.g. biofuels) competing with food production (Cotula, Dyer & Vermeulen 2008); (v) moves towards low-input farming as fuel and agrochemical costs increase, and alternative mineral sources are required (Niggli, Fließbach & Hepperly 2008). Taken together, these drivers will increase pressure on land for agricultural production.
