Hmm, from what I can tell, the answer as to why the starving millions aren't fed is politics, not lack of production capacity: http://www.psrast.org/nowohu.htm And earlier I noted 80% of the grain produced in the US gets fed to livestock, which most people probably consume more of here than is good for them. Organic *does*, in some cases, require crop rotation: fallowing, usually one year out of four. This is how Europe went from having poor rocky soil to really good soil, over lifetimes. If someone knows if there's been a way developed to get around the need to fallow a field... I note we started out with wonderful topsoil and have about six inches of it left in many places.
