The 'green revolution' has been seen as the answer to the problem of matching growth of food production with that of population. In spite of the importance of this problem, however, surprisingly few hard facts are available. This book is one of the first authoritative assessments of the spread and impact in Asia of the new agricultural technology. It provides vital data and probes their significance for the farmers and the economies of the region. Many of the book's authors are well known for their contribution to this field and their findings will be of major interest to policy makers introducing and evaluating new techniques, to those involved in channelling agricultural aid, and to all concerned with the possible global significance of the new technology. In Agricultural Development in Asia (ANUP, Canberra, 1969) a group of experts under Dr Shand's editorship laid a basis for understanding of development up to the time of introduction of the new technology. Technical Change in Asian Agriculture builds on that basis with field-level assessment of the progress of the new technology anid with consideration of its actual or potential secondary repercussions.
