About this book

Rainfed agricultural systems are characterized by high seasonal variability in labor demand, and often by low productivity. This poses important challenges for researchers trying to develop new agricultural technology. This volume describes the current state of farm labor in West Asia and North Africa and its relevance to technical change.

'Overall the text has been skilfully edited and compiled and it provides an indepth background and analysis of the key issues in a very readable forum....it will certainly be of interest to both students and researchers of agriculture in this region.' Biodiversity and Conservation 1: 121 1992
