General directions and choices in the strategy for agricultural development

The survey of policies and the catalogue of problems in the preceding chapters offer insufficient grounds for convincing recommendations. This insufficiency of evidence is in fact characteristic of the present agricultural situation in many of the countries which are pursuing new directions in their agricultural development. All that can be done is, firstly, to specify the general directions of policy which are widely recognized as desirable and which now appear as worthy tasks; and, secondly to describe the policy alternatives which appear to be open to countries at this time.
