||Estimating Area/Efficiency of
Agricultural Forested Lands
Agricultural efficiency is measured in tons of crops per acre. Achieving a high agricultural efficiency requires intensive labor or extensive use of machines, advanced farming techniques, fertilizer, use of high-yield seed, etc. So high agricultural efficiency indicates that a nation is wealthy or has a large industrial capacity. Compare the agricultural efficiency of North and South Korea with the efficiency of industrialized nations such as the U.S. or Germany and the efficiency of developing nations such as Brazil or Mexico.
You can use the Land Use Map to find the area of land devoted to different agricultural uses in Korea. The map shows three different types of agricultural land use: dry-field farming, wet-field farming, and forestry. To measure the area of a specific land use type
To determine agricultural efficiency, you will need to look up information about agricultural or forestry production for North or South Korea. Then divide the production in tons by the appropriate measured area in acres to obtain the agricultural efficiency. It might be of interest to compare agricultural efficiencies of land use in both North and South Korea.
