In evaluating prospects for increasing or improving world food output, emphasis is traditionally placed on two dimensions: (1) expanding area, and (2) improving yield of individual crops. Peculiarly, little has been said about a third possible dimension: time. It is possible to make fuller use of time by multiple cropping-the practice of growing more than one crop on the same piece of land in a year. Multiple cropping makes possible both an increase in area cultivated per year as well as an increase in total yield per unit of area per year
