, : Agricultural marketing and processing in upland Java: a perspective from a Sunda village. CGPRT Publication, ESCAP Regional Coordination Centre for Research and Development of Coarse Grains, Pulses, Roots and Tuber Crops in the Humid Tropics of Asia and the Pacific (8): xi + 75

The paper examines the system of local marketing and processing of agricultural products (soyabean, maize, tobacco and cassava) grown in upland areas of Garat district, Sunda region, Java. The marketing system was found to be efficient in economizing on the use of scarce capital, while utilizing the low opportunity cost of labour. Producers transporters, processors, middlemen and pedlars, make up a flexible economic network.
