Changes in Rice Farming

A Vaidyanathan Changes In Rice Farming in Selected Areas of Asia, Internationa] Rice Research Institute; Philippines, 1978; pp 166. DURING 1971-73 the Internationa! Rice Research Institute organised a survey of farmers in 36 villages selected from six countries to find out the attitude to, and experience of, adoption of the new semi-dwarf rice varieties (MVs) as well as their effect on employment and income distribution in different parts of Asia. The initial findings of the survey were reported in a volume under the same title published in 1975. The present volume provides (a) some further analysis of the inter-village and inter-farm variations in the extent of adoption of MVs and their performance; and (b) views the experience of selected agions and villages on particular aspects of the spread and impact of MVs. The former category of papers, forming part one of the minograph, is altogether more interesting.
