Preface
The study of Korea’s economic and social transformation offers a unique opportunity to better understand the factors that drive development. Within one generation, Korea has transformed itself from a poor agrarian society to a modern industrial nation, a feat never seen before. What makes Korea’s experience so unique is that its rapid economic development was relatively broad-based, meaning that the fruits of Korea’s rapid growth were shared by many. The challenge of course is unlocking the secr

Abstract

Until the 1950s, farming in Korea was carried out by using manual and animal-drawn implements such as shovel, plow, and sickle. These agricultural implements were mainly manufactured by blacksmith workshops or by small-scale factories. The quality of agricultural implements or machinery was mediocre and uneven. Moreover, the Korean War destroyed agricultural implement production facilities which were meager to start with and technicians for the agricultural implements production were also lost. Under such circumstances, the production of agricultural implements was difficult and there was a shortage of raw materials which made the quality of agricultural implements poorer than ever.
Against this backdrop, the government had to concentrate on disaster prevention measures including drought and disease control, which had significantly damaged the rice production, leading to dangers of risking stable food production. The agricultural implements and small machinery such as water pump and disease controller began being supplied. (The rest omitted)
