Brooks concludes (pp. ) that gross output of crop and livestock products per land unit is not greatly dissimilar in the Soviet and the non-Soviet area, as is fertilizer application, and that machinery per man-day is a bit less in the Soviet case. Where the difference is really great is its low labour.
