Mechanization and Agricultural Development in Pakistan

Recent experience of a number of countries has amply shown that there is a positive relationship between technology and output. A technological change refers to use of either a new input or an improvement in a traditional factor of production [22]. The changes in technology may be biological, chemical, or mechanical. The former two types of technologies, commonly known as “seed-fertilizer revolution”, have been thoroughly discussed in the literature on Pakistan, with or without reference to mechanical innovations [2; 3; 5; 7; 10; 11; 13; 15; 18; 19; 20; 25]. The objective of the present paper is to highlight the effects of mechanized cultivation on agricultural development in Pakistan.
