About this book

Considers the methods used by governments to change the environment within which agricultural production takes place, by influencing the prices of farm inputs and outputs, by modifying agricultural institutions, and by promoting new technologies.

...another in the excellent Cambridge University Press series of Wye Studies in Agricultural and Rural Development...not only achieves its design ambitions for use in undergraduate and postgraduate courses related to agricultural policy, agricultural economics, and rural development, but is also quite accessible to nonspecialist readers. Jock R. Anderson, Journal of Developing Areas
