Abstract


This book is the product of the efforts of a group of teachers
who felt the need to provide Asian students with empirical work on
agriculture which applies economic theory to their own environment. The
papers in the volume are organized into six topics on Agriculture: (a)
Management decisions on small farms; (b) importance of technical
know-how; (c) mechanization of agriĀ¬culture; (d) relationship between
farm-size and productivity; (e) impact of food aid; and (f) agricultural
policies of Asian countries. The major theme of the papers is that land
holdings in Asian Countries are usually very small.
