Abstract

The problems of transferring agricultural technology from the research stations in Asia and the Pacific to small-scale farmers are addressed in the 13 papers which comprise these proceedings of a May 1985 international seminar/workshop on the subject. The first two papers present a general discussion of developing appropriate technology for the small farmer, particularly in developing countries, and discuss the implications of the small farmer's lack of resources for agricultural inputs. The eight papers in section two present a series of case studies from Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines of development programs designed specifically for small farms. The final section contains three papers on technology transfer in Taiwan and Korea which, with Japan, have had outstanding success in developing a prosperous modern agricultural economy based entirely on very small farms. References and several discussion questions accompany each paper. (Author abstract, modified)
