Sincehowever, the yield per unit of land area for major crops has increased dramatically. Much of the increase in yields was because of increased inputs of energy. Between andthe farm tractor fleet quadrupled, world irrigated area tripled, and use of fertilizer increased ninefold.

The trade-wind climate is replaced by a tropical monsoon climate in some tropical regions (equatorial Africa, South and Southeast Asia, northern Australia). In summer the intertropical convergence zone here shifts far from the equator, and instead of an easterly trade wind between it and the equator there develops a westerly air transport.

[53] The subhumid zone covers a band south of the semi-arid region through the center of west Africa and into east and southern Africa. This zone is better suited for agriculture, with – mm/yr rainfall [ McIntire et al., ] and a growing period of 6 to 9 months.

Agroecosystems: Soils, Climate, Crops, Nutrient Dynamics and Productivity resources have direct impact on composition of crop species, intensity of cropping and productivity of an agroeosystem.

For example, creation of a dam across a river that augments irrigation can immediately induce farmers to change the cropping pattern and yield goals. South Asia have doubled rice production since Indonesia has almost tripled its rice production during that time.
