Seminar-workshop on the consequences of small farm mechanization on production, employment and income in the Philippines



Seminar-workshop on the consequences of small farm mechanization on production, employment and income in the Philippines



Journal of Philippine Development 12(1): 1-235



The Seminar-Workshop, held on 1-2 December 1983 at the Development Academy of the Philippines in Tagaytay City, focused on four major issues: (1) A review of empirical research on the impact of farm machinery on small rice farmers and landless workers; (2) Economy wide methods for evaluating the direct and indirect impact of mechanization on employment and income opportunities in the economy; (3) A historical review of the impact of Philippine government policies and programmes on agricultural mechanization; (4) The proper role of government in the identification of plan, policy and programme directions for the mechanization of agriculture. Most of the papers are reproduced in this special issue: (1) A review of past, present and proposed mechanization strategies in the Philippines (R.M. Lantin and L.O. Faigmane); (2) The effects of small farm mechanization on employment and output in selected rice-growing areas in Nueva Ecija, Philippines (J.F. Sison, R.W. Herdt and B. Duff); (3) Changes in harvesting-threshing arrangements and landless labourers (L.Z. Ebron, G. Castillo and P.M. Kaiser); (4) Comparative evaluation of tractor and carabao use in rice land preparation, Nueva Ecija, Philippines, 1980 (C.L. Maranan); (5) The private and social profitability of mechanical threshing (F.S. Juarez); (6) The impact of mechanization on agricultural production in selected villages of Nueva Ecija (D. Shields); (7) Effects of agricultural mechanization on farm income patterns (P.C. Lim); (8) A history of credit programmes supporting agricultural mechanization in the Philippines (B.Y. Reyes and M.H. Agabin); and (9) MA-IRRI Industrial Extension Program for small farm equipment (B.C. Gonzalo and R.E. Stickney).
