Strategies for agricultural development: Introduction

The recent biological breakthrough in agriculture, heralded by the advent of high-yielding and fast-maturing varieties of food plants, profoundly affects the processes of growth of agriculture in the developing countries. By altering production relations and relative profitabilities, it has brightened the prospects of transforming traditional agriculture into a modern and viable sector of the economy. The sustained growth of the area under high-yielding varieties, the extensive use of fertilizers and pesticides, the expansion of irrigation facilities, and the strategic changes in economic policies in general, and agricultural policy in particular, appear to add up to a revolutionary development in several countries of the ECAFE region.
