Technology and the small farmer

Many early reports concerning modern agricultural technology discussed the rural farmer in developing countries in the abstract.

However, it was implied that he was relatively poor, relatively price-responsive, and relatively integrated into his community’s social structure. Given these general characteristics, it was assumed that new technological innovations need only prove economically worthy in order for them to be utilized.
