The Second International Conference on Agricultural Mechanization in Developing Countries was held in Amsterdam in January 1984. The recommendations that were made include the following: the formulation of national agricultural strategies; the consideration as agricultural mechanization both as a long-term development factor and as a response to immediate problems; the need for multidisciplinary training programs; the need for manufacturing equipment designed to satisfy local needs; more cooperation among small and medium-scale manufacturers in both developed and Third World countries; and better assessment of the respective roles that can best be played by public and private organizations for the introduction and support of agricultural mechanization.
