Landlords into Industrialists

countries, cost structure of externally traded products, technological innovations affecting production and processing of the concerned products, growth of the industries using agricultural products, etc. The author discusses most of the relevant factors. However, no precise idea about the future behaviour of such factors or their impact on future demand for farm products is given. Instead broad possibilities are indicated. For doing so he makes extensive, though at times uncritical, use of data from publications such as the FAO's commodity reports. Of course at places the use of international data seems extravagant if not irrelevant (e g, tables indicating rice consumption in Ceylon, civilian consumption of soap and synthetic detergents in the USA, production of Kenaf in Thailand, etc).
