Technological Change, Tenant Displacement and Adjustment in Pakistan: Some Preliminary Observations
Author: Abdul Salam

Agriculture in Pakistan has experienced a breakthrough which is commonly known as the Green Revolution. This breakthrough was achieved mainly through the introduction of high yielding varieties of wheat, rice and maize, increased use of chemical fertilizers, tractors, and substantial private and public investment in water development projects. All this has helped in shifting the country’s agricultural production function outward. The agricultural policy of the government, which has encouraged the use of new technology, has also contributed to this shift and increased resource productivity.
