Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta t, 1t74 TMI LCTMMMDOJ HIMALO-19 Nonfood crops take up more than 53 million acres, says agrologist There's something that can be done right now to counteract food shortages, malnutrition and starvation and it won't take an extra ton of fertilizer or an extra acre of land, says a Brigham Young University agrologist. Lowell D. Wood, associate professor of agricultural economics, is proposing production of edible foods on some S3 million acres around the world being cultivated to produce nonfood crops such as tobacco, coffee, tea, and alcoholic beverages. "Our research indicates if people are serious about food shortages and want to avert mass hunger predicted by many population experts, then there is an Dr. Wood etpUined. The alternative, he says, would be to convert Don-nutritional crops to active production of food commodities. He made his proposal after a three month study of data in the United States and the world over including acreage used for tobacco, alcoholic beverages, coffee and tea. None of these offer substantial nutritional value to the body. His study did not include the cultivation of grapes and other items used in wines, or acreage for various homemade native drinks throughout the >rld. Dr. Wood, a former resident of the Glenwood area, estimated the total production of nonfood items includes: Tobacco, 9.95 million acres; Distilled spirits, 4.88 million acres; Beer, 13.Ij million acres; Coffee, million acres; Tea, 3.31 million Fifty-three million acres is about one- third of the area of Alberta. He estimated that more than 200 million bushels of grain were used to brew beer and distil in the United States during 1970. If the acreage used for tobacco and alcoholic beverages were planted in soybeans, he speculated, it could produce enough protein in a year to supply the needs of about 12.5 million people in the United States. Around the world, the acreage could supply enough protein for 140 million people. "However, I'm not particularly optimistic about the possibilities of the land being shifted to food production In the near Dr. Wood said. "There are many problems which would discourage changing the crop production." He explained that many governments, including the United States, derive tax revenue from most nonfood products and industries have been developed to market and distribute the products. "In the United States alone during 1970, there were nearly five million acres used to produce tobacco and grains for nonfood he said. "In addition, the government used tax funds to subsidize the tobacco crop and then spent more money to promote the study of cancer and ways to encourage people to stop smoking. He said he regards this conflict as an ironic twist in marketing demands versus health realities. Dr. Wood laid he regards as a cru- cial year in food cootumption in the United from an agricultural omist's point of view. "We're turning the corner as consumers and most people are becoming more concerned about shortages when it begins to affect what they find on the store he said. The net result, Dr. Wood said, should be for people to examine their priorities in food and crop production and eliminate much of the waste they have grown familiar with during times of plenty. Rec Village project to be aired A public hearing will be held Tuesday evening in Pincher Creek to allow local residents to present their opinions on a proposed million recreational village near Westcastle. White Spruce Landsco Ltd., a locally owned company, has proposed to develop a acre vacation resort 15 miles southwest of Pincher Creek Max Gibb, of Lethbridge, one of the shareholders in the company, told The Herald about acres would be left in an "improved natural with the remaining 200 a'cres subdivided into 200 residential lots, including a 50- unit townhouse development.
