Food Supply Chains Production systems and input supply

Eggs yield


Yield means the harvested production per hectare for the area under cultivation, expressed in tonnes per hectare or kilograms per animal.


Yields measure the efficiency with which inputs are used to produce agricultural output. Improving production efficiency is considered a critical path to meet food and nutrition security needs of current and future generations. The yields data, subtracted from consumptive need can serve as an indicator of coherence between sustainable production and healthy consumption targets.
