Food will win the war and write the peace! This slogan was heard often during the war period. Patriotic urge plus higher prices- which stemmed from increased food needs- brought forth a sharp boost in farm output during the early war period (see chart 1). This output has continued to expand despite the loss of some of the wartime and early postwar special demands.
