In many countries, both those with and without land available for expan-
sion, there is large scope to increase productivity on currently cultivated land,
something that could have major impacts on poverty. Broadly, countries with
relatively little or no available additional suitable land for cultivation (for exam-
ple, Burundi, the Arab Republic of Egypt, India, Malawi, and Rwanda) are on
the left half of the graph, and those with relatively more land (for example,
Argentina, Brazil, Russia, Sudan, Uruguay, and Zambia) are on the right.
