Dr. Henry Kennedy said that his contribution to the Discussion would
take the form of a detailed estimate of the productive potential of our
land. He would leave to other speakers consideration of the economic
and perhaps political pre-requisites for the attainment, in whole or in
part, of the estimates which he put forward.
An estimate is made of what production might be obtained from the
land of the country, assuming that it is farmed with adequate knowledge,
skill and adequate capital resources for equipment and essential raw
materials. In order to simplify the problem, it is assumed that the foods
for man and beast are home produced; and that no feed for animals
is imported. The object is to give a picture of what might be achieved
on the assumption of various crop yields.
