The world has so far avoided dismal predictions by Malthus and Ricardo on the inexorable consequences of population growth with the application of science to the development of technology geared towards maximizing the intensity of land use for agricultural production. The mechanism by which this ‘science‐based agriculture’ has been transferred from developed to developing economies and how this process can further be strengthened are investigated.

Keywords: agriculture; Dutch disease; green revolution; science‐based development; staple theory; technology transfer

Chapter.  11297 words.  Illustrated.
