Labour & Rainfed Agriculture in West Asia & North Africa, Dennis Tully.
5 Labour & Rainfed Agriculture in West Asia & North Africa Dennis Tully.
Kluwer Academic. 1990 0792306872 / 9780792306870 First Edition. Hardcover Very Good No Jacket 
A very good 299 page ex-university library hardback book with the usual stamps. Completely unworn and, apart from the library stamps, unmarked. Appears to be unused. Part One: 5 regional overview papers; Part Two: 8 country review papers. Numerous tables. Rainfed agricultural systems are characterized by high seasonal variability in labour demand, and often by low productivity. As off-farm employment opportunities have grown, farm families often combine agriculture with other activities, even living away from the farm in some cases. This poses important challenges for researchers trying to develop new, more productive agricultural technology. Will labour of appropriate skill levels be available to implement new technology? What if new technology replaces labour? This volume describes the current state of farm labour in West Asia and North Africa and its relevance to technological change.
