A Programming Approach to Some Agriculture Policy Problems in West Pakistan



    (Harvard University)


Planners attempting to influence the course of a country's agricultural development can expect to confront a wide variety of problems which are difficult, perhaps impossible, to formalize. Many of these will involve the most significant decisions in determining an effective sectoral growth strategy. Examples that come readily to mind for agriculture include the asessment of the optimal level of resources to be devoted to research and extension activities, the development of viable credit and marketing institutions, provisions for productive land tenure arrangements, etc.
