A comparative analysis of thresher adoption and use in Thailand and the Philippines. Paper presented at the joint ADC/IRRI Workshop on the consequences of small rice farm mechanization in Asia, September 14-18, 1981

A comparative analysis of thresher adoption and use in Thailand and the Philippines Paper presented at the joint ADC/IRRI Workshop on the consequences of small rice farm mechanization in Asia, September 14-18, 1981: 57



The paper provides a cross country comparison of thresher adoption and use in Thailand and Philippines. It attempts to trace the history of thresher adoption and diffusion, determine the factors affecting adoption, and measure the private costs and benefits. It is found that such factors as irrigation, high yielding rice varieties, farm size and credit facilities affect adoption. However, it is the net positive benefits that induces rapid adoption.
