Agricultural technology: policy issues for the international community edited by J R Anderson 1994 ISBN 0 85198 880 6 CAB International, Wallingford, Oxon OX10 8DE, UK
Major, complex problems confront agricultural policy analysts and development specialists regarding the broad issue of 'agricultural technology'. These topics are reviewed in this volume which consists of 37 chapters and is published by CAB International. The book is developed from papers presented at a conference held at Airlie House, Virginia, near Washington DC. The authors include leading international authorities from the academic sector, the World Bank and agricultural research centres. The chapters are grouped into six parts. The first part is introductory. Part 2 focusses on investment. In Part 3 a variety of conceptual and practical issues involved in the transfer of agricultural technology is considered. Part 4 includes discussions of technical matters ranging, for example, from soil management to irrigation engineering. Emphasis moves from the specifically technological to wider policy issues in Part 5 and this continues through into the final summarizing section.
