A study of the factors which make the productive agricultural area of the German Democratic Republic unable to feed a declining population, under conditions of improved technology and massive state subsidization. Such aspects are discussed as physical factors and soil use, expropriation and settlement, collectivization, machine-tractor stations, production and delivery planning, the double-price system in agriculture, fertilizer and seed supply, agricultural output, performance of the Socialist sector, and food consumption.
