Fig. 3. Resilience drops as a function of intensity. A) Returns to intensification (production/ha) diminish, and cost structures differ between small (unmechanized) and large (mechanized) farms. Differences in property size and costs mean that the lower boundary on intensity (to meet basic household needs) will differ across farms of different sizes. Differences in costs may mean that the upper boundary on intensification differs also. B) Smaller farms exhibit a narrower range of viability (latitude) with respect to intensity than larger farms, and lower resilience (resistance) to collapse. Fig. 3
