Economic Effects of Technological Advances in Agriculture.
Welch, Mary A., Ed.
Economic Issues for Food, Agriculture, and Natural Resources, n4 Fall 1990
Comparisons of average food prices and hourly wages based on 40-hours work week in various capital cities of the world are presented. Such factors as mechanization, chemicals, and improved genetics have resulted in greater productivity, fewer but larger farms, and hardier plants and animals. The economic effects are discussed as they are felt by both the producers and consumers. The booklet concludes with two student projects and a quiz. (EH)
