Abstract

The economical situation at agricultural industry has been changed rapidly in Korea for the last 40 years. The population in farming area decreased sharply and the labor demand increased dramatically. The portion of the old and women has been increased. The farm size, and farm rural wage have been increased. Those were the driving forces of the mechanization in agricultural industry. The Agricultural Mechanization made the opportunities of off-farm employment and income. To promote the agricultural mechanization, and the welfare of the farming and fishing communities, Korean government was enforced the several laws. From 1972, small-scale power agricultural machinery has been used to replace the manual powers. From 1977, the mechanization of rice farming has been promoted for transplanting and harvesting. Through three consecutive 5-year Farm Mechanization Plans, the mechanization for rice farming has been almost complete. (The rest omitted)
