"Crop production, cropland use, harvest frequency, and land intensification in economic models"
by Taheripour, Farzad, Wally Tyner and Uris Lantz Baldos

Several recent publications have shown that land intensification in crop production (defined as the ratio of H over L where H and L represent harvested area and available land, respectively) has increased across the world due to expansion in harvest frequency (for example see Ray and Foley (2013)). An improvement in the harvest frequency basically occurs due to expansion in multiple cropping (producing more than one crop using the same land in one growing season) or returning idled cropland to crop production. The expansion in harvest frequency, if it persists in the future, could lead to expansion in crop production and absorb a portion of future increases in demand for cropland. To evaluate the potential economic and land use impacts of improvements in harvest frequency, we need to introduce this source of land intensification in existing economic models.
